Hidden for more than 50 years in the heart of the woods of Milly-la-Forêt in Essonne (south of Paris), the Cyclope, the work of Jean Tinguely and Niki de Saint-Phalle has been restored after more than a year of work led by the National Center for Plastic Arts.

The work is again visible to the public.

The opportunity to rediscover the history of this rather special creation.
