Artist’s Fun Fact:

When pigs fly, they will choose to be the pilot. This sculpture is a half scale model of the Wright Brother’s first plane. It amazes me that the original plane had a 40 ft. wing span. They built their own water cooled engine and the instrument cluster consisted of an air speed indicator, a stop watch and a fuel shut off valve.
