Marie Antoinette’s Chopper

at

No, not that one..

Lilicoptère by artist Joana Vasconcelos is a Bell47 helicopter adorned with ‘ostrich feathers, Swarovski crystals, gold leaf, industrial coating, dyed leather upholstery embossed with fine gold, Arraiolos rugs, walnut wood, wood grain painting and passementerie’.

The sculpture – Vasconcelos’ vision of what Marie Antoinette would have had commissioned for herself – had such a thing been available in late 18th century Paris – was exhibited at the Palais de Versailles last year.
