Immediately following the death of Amy Winehouse earlier this year, fans helped commemorate her by making her iconic Back To Black album claim the top spot on iTunes in countries worldwide. And many of our favorite artists paid their own tributes to the soul singer, including M.I.A., Big Boi and Tony Bennett. Now fans will have another way to forever remember Amy -- a bronze sculpture.
Daniel Edwards, the artist who brought us a rather graphic depiction of Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber's young romance and a rendition of Lady Gaga that's meant as a metaphor for the 2010 Gulf oil spill, recently revealed his latest work -- a bronze bust of Amy Winehouse. Comparatively speaking, Edwards' take on the singer is a bit more subdued than his other works, as the bust seems to serve as a straightforward tribute to Amy.
The "Memorial Portrait for Amy Winehouse" shows the "Body & Soul" singer wearing her signature beehive hairstyle, and we get a feeling of serenity and peace through the flowers and lone bird nestled in her big hair. On his latest creation Edwards said, "I thought of her as a beautifully delicate fairy-tale princess, waiting to be rescued from fame and addiction, but her prince never came. 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."
