Not too sure what inspired this, but there’s something that doesn’t just seem quite right about stuffing a dead cat and turning it into a remote-controlled flying helicopter. Dutch artist Bart Jansen has done just that and debuted his creation, the “Orvillecopter”, at the KunstRai ArtFair in Amsterdam last weekend.
Jansen describes the “Orvillecopter” (named that because the cat used was named Orville) as “half cat, half machine”. Orville had belonged to Jansen and died after he was hit by a car.
“After a period of mourning, he received his propellers posthumously,” Jansen said.
