Golden Moss

August 28, 2008 / Posted by:

British artist Marc Quinn has a major hard-on for Kate Moss. In 2006, he created a sculpture of Kate with her cokey crotch taking center strange. Now Marc has taken it even further. This October, Marc will unveil his $2.8 million, 110-pound solid gold statute of Kate. Solid gold and it only weighs 110-pounds? The real Kate Moss doesn’t even weigh half of that. It’s a coke statue covered in foolio’s gold. Don’t be surprised if Marc’s work pays a visit to a “museum” in Miami. I know what’s going on here.

When asked why Marc chose to make a gold statute of Miss Moss, he answered, “I thought the next thing to do would be to make a sculpture of the person who’s the ideal beauty of the moment. But even Kate Moss doesn’t live up to the image.”

I feel sorry for Marc. He obviously has never seen a picture of the most gorgeous, elegant, stunning creature on the planet: The Empress of Lucite. One of Shauna Sand’s poopy nuggets are worth more than 10 of those Kate Moss statues.

The British Museum only released a teaser image of the statute, but I’m pretty sure the whole thing probably looks like something that belongs in an Easter basket. This fuckery will be on display from October 4th through January 25th.
