A solid gold statue of Kate Moss is to go on display at the British Museum.
The sculpture, valued at $2.8 million, has been crafted by artist Marc Quinn.
Tipping the scales at 110 lbs, it is believed to be the largest gold statue built since the time of ancient Egypt. Quinn says he chose Moss because she was the closest model to human perfection he could find.
He adds: "I thought the next thing to do would be to make a sculpture of the person who is the ideal beauty of the moment. But even Kate Moss doesn't live up to the image."
The Moss statue will be exhibited at the British Museum in October.
