I had to re-check the author of this post to be sure it wasn't Charles, then I realized that there wasn't any actual nudity posted.

Good christ. If we must have a solid gold statue, could we please have Paul Newman or something? Why Kate Moss doing a pretzel imitation? Fuck, that's lame.

See, this is what they mean when they say Europe has all the culture and we have none. We have losers like Jonathan Raban while they have genius artworks like this, made from 50 kilograms of gold. The fact that we can't appreciate how great this is just shows what rubes we are.

at 50 Kgs does the statue weigh more than Kate Moss herself?

Well, at least gold can be melted down and re-used.

@13, the artist even suggests that's what it's good for. After he collects his million-dollar fee, of course.

@12, "weighing 50kg, around the same as its subject." -from the linked article.
