Fab in Feathers February 24 2013

This unbelievably chic helicopter was thought up by artist Joana Vasconcelos. Ostrich feathers cover this lavish chopper. Dripping in thousands of Swarovski crystals and adorned with dyed leather upholstery embossed with fine gold, Arraiolos rugs, walnut wood, and custom passementerie. This copter appears to be caught in the metamorphosis stage between animal and machine. Vasconcelos was inspired by the ornate beauty of Marie Antoinette and the Rococo period.
