    The Cyclops is located in the woods of the poor to mijjy_la_foret. S e u huge sculpture made of concrete and iron of vingt_deux meters in height and weighing around three hundred tons. C is a huge mind a aspect d l a Cyclops. The monster has a unique look that moves. D a gaping mouth at the center of the figure comes a huge langue_toboggan that falls down d a small pool filled with water. On the right side of the Cyclops is visible the ear of the monster. This component of the sculpture is realised by the sculptor Bernard Lunginbuhl Switzerland. The ear fluctuates when the internal system of the sculpture. It is accessible by a very heavy door designed by Lunginbuhl. At the top of this entry is visible a large pipe, it s is a conduit d ventilation of the centre Pompidou in Paris as Pontus Hulten gave Tinguely. The inside of the sculpture consists of three levels. At the top of the sculpture there is even a wagon perched 20 meters in height that has to be airlifted. Amazing! The entrance (7e50) seems a bit expensive to only visit this sculpture but in compensation an interesting guide and explains everything each time. J forgot to mention that this sculpture is the work of l artist Jean Tinguely in collaboration with Nicki's Saint_Phalle. T is well worth the detour.

    The Cyclop is a madness - a kind of living artwork. To look at from the outside and inside and be sure to watch to the rolling balls, moving things, the water, the pool -!

    Totally worth a visit to see what a previous era in the region was like when the arts were thriving and definitely do the tour!

    Interesting monumental sculpture (high 25 m) containing different mechanisms of various artists in the middle of the forest of Milly. Well maintained and well managed. Predict a 20 minutes into the Woods from the parking lot to the entrance.

    A remarkable, astonishing, funny work. An exciting tour. A remake when when the Cyclop's makeover. It is unfortunate that pictures are not allowed inside.
