Artist Turns Dead Pet Cat Into Flying Helicopter [VIDEO]

From bartjansen.tv

We love our pets.  They become members of our families.  When they pass away we experience the same stages of grief that we would for any other loved one.   Sometimes we bury them in our backyards.  Other times they’re taken care of at the vet after they are put down.  Or, if you’re like Dutch artist Bart Jansen, you turn your pet into a helicopter.

Orville, named for the famous Wright Brother, was run over by a car. His owner decided to turn him into a permanent piece of artwork as the ultimate tribute by transforming him into a flying helicopter.

Jansen first stuffed Orville before teaming up with radio control helicopter flyer Arjen Beltman to build a specially-designed flying mechanism to attach to the cat.

This is a video of Orville’s “first flight.”

What do you think?  Do you think turning your pet into art (ie, attached to a helicopter) is a good way to honor it?  Or is it disrespectful?
