“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. We previously posted about Ping’s indoor snake skeleton installation “Ressort.”
