Moss Gets Remodelled
British artist MARC QUINN is creating a new version of his naked and contorted KATE MOSS sculpture to go on sale in Britain.
Quinn is designing a 3 metre (9.8 feet) high version of Myth (Sphinx) from white-painted bronze for the upcoming Beyond Limits sale of modern and contemporary sculpture at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire.
And Alex Platon, a specialist in modern art at Sotheby's, is confident the sculpture will attract a hoard of bidders: "Myth (Sphinx) is a blow-away piece: she (Moss) has a completely mesmerising, Medusa-like effect. It is a real testament to the compelling, tantalising, power of beauty."
Quinn's original installation of the catwalk beauty toured Europe last year (06).
