I came across this image and was curios to know more since I've always had an affinity for the slightly magical and whimsical. That's where Google comes in! Before knowing what this contraption was it reminded me of something that would exist in a Hayao Miyazaki world. 

Aeroflorale was constructed by French arts group La Machine - inspired by the flying contraption drawings from Leonardo Da Vinci. Read more about it here.
