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!
