Marie Antoinette's Helicopter

So does anybody recognize this lady?

Marie Antoinette - 1762

It's Marie Antoinette. You remember her from your history classes don't you? The Queen of France who met an awful end. But while she was alive she was not only the Queen of France, but she was also the Queen of Bling. It's probably part of the reason for her horrible end. But anyway, artist Joana Vasconcelos has envisioned what Marie's ride would be like if she was a modern day Queen of Bling. And this is the artist's vision.

Can't you just picture this sitting in the courtyard at Versailles?

I don't know about the rest my faithful followers, but I want one!
