In the world of fashion Kate Moss was always worth her weight in gold, but now she really is gold…literally.
British artist Marc Quin, famous for works like “Allison Lapper pregnant“, “Sphinx” or “Self“, a bust of his head for which he used eight pints of his own blood, presented his latest masterpiece, “Siren” a 50 kg solid gold statue of international supermodel Kate Moss. The 1,5 million pounds statue is on display at the British Museum, in the Nereid Hall. A part of his latest collection, entitled Statuephilia, “Siren” depicts Kate Moss in a Yoga position and has already been named “the Aphrodite of our time“.
Marc Quinn‘s “Siren” is said to be the largest gold statue created since the time of Ancient Egypt.
