This cat-copter is visual artist Bart Jansen’s tribute to his cat Orville, who was named after the aviator Orville Wright. Apparently, Orville loved birds. So, after the cat was killed by a car and Jansen had duly mourned, he turned Orville’s body into a low flying helicopter, named the Orvillecopter.
As Jansen says: “Now he is finally flying with the birds. The greatest goal a cat could ever reach!
Orvillecopter is currently on display at the KunstRai Art Fair in Amsterdam.
