ESTUAIRE 2012 ©Gino Maccarinelli

“Serpent d’Océan” is a massive aluminum sea serpent skeleton that is installed on a beach in the French seaside town of Saint-Brévin-Les Pins.

The 425-foot-long sculpture was created by Chinese artist Huang Yong Ping for the 2012 “Estuaire” art exhibition.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
