Amy Winehouse Gets Immortalized in Naked Bust Sculpture


Described as 'memorial portrait', the work of controversial sculptor Daniel Edwards features the late 'Rehab' singer tattoo-less and piercings-free with songbird and lilies decorating her hair.

A tribute to the late Amy Winehouse has just been unveiled. The bronze memorial bust came from the hand of controversial sculptor Daniel Edwards and was made in response to the remembrance requests from numerous Facebook fans from the U.K., detailed Cory Allen Contemporary Art.

Called "Memorial Portrait for Amy Winehouse", this sculpture depicts the "Back to Black" singer bare-chested, and presents her without her trademark tattoos and piercings. In exchange, Daniel decorates her beehive-styled hair with a songbird and lilies. It is unveiled less than a month after a bronze metallic statue of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez was shown to public.

Of the work, Daniel said, "I thought of her as a beautifully delicate fairytale princess, waiting to be rescued from fame and addiction, but her prince never came." He added, "I had always expected to sculpt her portrait, but I was waiting for her to put some of her troubles behind her. She had made me pay attention to contemporary music again."

The New York artist's representative Cory Allen additionally explained in a statement, "The portrait of Amy is dedicated to those struggling with addiction and eating disorder. Nobody should have to go through what Amy went through."

Amy was found dead at the age of 27 on her bed in her Camden, north London home on July 23. In the wake of her untimely death, the soul singer's father Mitch unraveled plans to set up a rehab charity in her memory. After a brief delay because of its name, Mitch announced via Twitter that The Amy Winehouse Foundation will be launched on September 14.
