Sunday Drive: Carousel Animals

During my 2009 visit to France we spent a week in the Loire Valley--seven days, eight châteaux and one royal abbey--the one at Fontevraud, where they were displaying a huge collection of 20th century French carousel animals in several of the rooms. The figures were all suspended from a mechanical device near the ceiling that caused them to move up and down when the guide rotated a handle.
