- Supermodel cast in yoga bronze
LONDON supermodel Kate Moss is the subject of a striking new sculpture unveiled at an exhibition in the Netherlands.
Moss is captured in a classic yoga postion by the British artist Marc Quinn. He compares the celeb's iconic status to 1920's starlet Lousie Brooks.
"There must be something about her that has clicked with the collective unconscious to make her so ubiquitous - so spirit-of-the-age" said Quinn. "She is a contemporary version of the Sphinx - a mystery."
Quinn shot to fame when his previous work - eight frozen pints of his own blood in the shape of his head - shocked the art world with its originality and cheek.
