The Carousel is based on tales by the French writer Jules Verne (1828-1905) from the nineteenth century who wrote such tales as Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea , Around the World in Eighty Days and Journey to the Centre and of the Earth. Jules Verne is often claimed as one of the founders of the science fiction genre.
These incredible works inspired this beautiful carousel.
There are magnificent illustrations covering every inch of the Carousel. Each a work of art on its own.
Instead of the usual horses, the rides are those you might find in one of Vernes books, the hot-air balloon, planes, cars, swans, each one is beautiful and presents a serious dilemma for a child to choose just one!
If you ever find yourself in Brittany, Quimper is a must see and this Carousel is worthy of a ride!
Happy Carousel dreams!
