  • Incredible site in the forest. Designed by several artists worth a visit. Of course take the guided tour to understand the spirit of the artists.

  • Amazing to see such a sculpture in a beautiful forest... between great no matter what and modernism I don't know or situate myself. Do not make the road just to the cyclop

  • 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!
  • What a wonderful artistic surprise out here in the forest.
  • Awesome installation
  • Cool, nice but the problem is that it has failed to go inside because of a power failure

  • An absolute must, if it is dropped on the artwork of Jean Tinguelys or Niki de Saint Phalle. Le Cyclop is one of the most important works by Jean Tinguely. The impressive height of 22 metres of walk-in iron sculpture from 350 tons of steel is tucked away in the woods of Milly-la-Forêt, South of Paris, ca 20 West of Fontainebleau. I was lucky enough to only a few visitors to meet and had even free admission. Thus it was me possible of this work to take pictures very good 3D. If you have the size and mass of this admonitory plastic front, then one can understand also that from the beginning of construction in 1969 until the 1994 much time needed. Unfortunately, Jean Tinguely has not witnessed the inauguration. As in most of his works of art, various gear trains are built, even in this so that somewhere is something outside or inside something on the move constantly. Who wants to see more works of this extraordinary artist in action, I recommend the Tinguely Museum in Basel. There is then a cross-section of his artistic career.
