$3 Million golden statue of Kate Moss by Marc Quinn. What a way to start a day! As a project for the British Museum’s “Statuephilia” exhibition, this golden Kate will be displayed from October 4 to January 25.
Marc Quinn’s obsession with Kate Moss isn’t something new. It already spawned a yoga-positioned Kate (she didn’t pose for that knotted-legged statue herself, in case you were already wondering…). He believes that La Moss is the spirit of the age itself and as such he decided to cast her in gold and honor her like a proper God(ess). An Egyptian one. Too bad the statue’s only hollow, like the person. What’s this golden Kate supposed to do? Honor her? Honor the models? Honor drug addiction and rock’n’roll life?
UPDATE: Here’s the glorious statue, revealed in all its skeletronic glory:
