Huang Yong Ping’s gigantic sea serpent surges out at the “transversal limit of the ocean” with a skeleton right out of an archaeological dig.
Its movement makes it look alive, almost as if this snake and its oversized head swam the seven seas just to wash up on this beach. The bend of its vertebrae rhymes with the curve of the Saint-Nazaire bridge, and its pose is reminiscent of the unique architecture of carrelets : the typical fishing cabins one finds along the French Atlantic coast.
