Retired Jaguar being transformed into artwork

An innovative use has been found for a retired Jaguar jet in France

Former French Air Force SEPECAT Jaguar A36 is now the centrepiece of an art installation being developed by Dan Gerbo in Dornach, within France’s Alsace region.

Titled Le Repos du Guerrier (The Warrior’s Rest), it is destined for Dan’s museum of contemporary art at Mulhouse, which is set to open later this year. The jet was previously with the Savigny-les-Beaune Museum in Burgundy, from which it was obtained by its current owner. It’s anticipated that the finished work will feature the jet displayed vertically with its nose planted in the ground.
