It wasn’t just the arrival of the Tour de France that has been turning heads in Paris this week.
Down on a bank of the River Seine, a 50ft dead sperm whale appeared to be lying on the pavement while ‘investigators’ examined its remains and spoke to the press.
The incredibly realistic art installation confused many visitors who believed it to be real. The whale has appeared before at various locations across Europe and was created by the Belgian organisation, Captain Boomer Collective, to raise awareness about human impact on the environment. 2016 saw nearly 30 sperm whales strand on European coastlines.
