Gold Statue Of Kate Moss To Visit British Museum

|

Artist Marc Quinn has made “the largest gold statue since Ancient Egypt” for the British Museum. And who was the muse? Kate Moss. The actual piece, titled Siren, captures Moss in a yoga pose rather than mid-coke shovel. However, the £1.5m statue will be placed in the gallery of Greek sculpture pictured above. That way it can “[interact] with the great Greek beauties that surround it,” said the museum. Judging from Quinn’s earlier statues of Moss (in the gallery below), those ancient busts should look forward to an eyeful of cameltoe from October 4 til January 25, when it will auctioned for charity.
