The project started out in 1997 by creators Michel Guyot and Maryline Martin and has been ongoing for the past 20 years.

It has been able to produce over 55 jobs and draws more than 300,000 visitors every year. The expected completion of the project is 2023 and the best apart about it is that there’s beauty in both the creation and completion of the project.
