A mechanical dragon named Long Ma has held court in Toulouse, France since February 2022. Housed in the city’s Halle de La Machine in Toulouse, she was inspired by the Chinese legend of the goddess of Nüwa. François Delaroziere created Long Ma in 2014 for a major show in Beijing. Returning to Nantes for maintenance, Long Ma stopped in Toulouse to be presented for three months at the Halle de La Machine here it has been maintained and operated by Delaroziere's La Machine production company. During her time there Long Ma has ventured outside and greeted fellow mechanical creation Asterion the Minotaur as well as the inhabitants of the Montaudran district some of whom she has even let ride on her back.
