Triceracopter Stands For Things That Should Be History

Now, if you were smitten by the mechanical cheetah that Alexander Chase designed and even wanted to buy it but couldn’t because it wasn’t available for sale; we have some good news to cheer your spirits up. There is an interesting being called te Triceracopter that might just impress you. As the name suggests, it is a helicopter made to look like a tricerosaurus.

It dates back to the post-Vietnam war era (1977 to be precise), inspiring the well-renowned artist Patricia Renick to reflect the obsolescence of war. The Triceracopter has been made in clay potted over a Vietnam-era U.S. Army-spec OH-6 Cayuse helicopter. And then it was giving a final touch with fiberglass.

The copter was originally put up at a solo exhibition of the artist’s at the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center. And now, it has been made available for public consumption either by a ‘qualified museum, institution or individual’, we really dunno and do not care as long as there is a possibility to buy it. Start writing the check fellas!
