When the Dutch artist Bart Jansen’s cat Orville died after being run over by a car, the owner decided to turn the cat into an art installation, reports the Daily Mail.
Orville, who was named after aviation pioneer Orville Wright, is now a cat-helicopter.
He took the help of Arjen Beltman, an expert on radio-controlled helicopters, and built a flight mechanism that he attached to Orville.
The installation was named “Orvillecopter” and the artist tells the Daily Mail that the artwork is half cat and half machine. According to the artist soon Orville will fly with the birds.
– He loved birds, he tells the Daily Mail.
The weird helicopter could this weekend be viewed on Kunstrai art festival in Amsterdam where visitors could see the cat fly around.
