"Garuda" : a mythical creature, half human, half eagle

"If I have to be perfectly honest, this is a slightly out of control project...LOL"

Started with the ambition to build an airplane, based on the skeleton of a golden eagle that would fit myself in the ribcage for piloting. The installation is currently under full construction and will be shown to the public as from the summer of 2020. Once finished, the Garuda will have a wingspan of more than 12m and an extended height of 5m.
