A twisted Venus


The Flea's commitment to comprehensive Kate Moss coverage continues* with this update on the Aphrodite of Addiscombe. Marc Quinn's sculpture is influenced by the multi-limbed goddess Shiva, apparently. Hence the bendiness.

Marc Quinn, who has called his oeuvre The Sphinx, says he was inspired by the 32-year-old model because, "She is a contemporary version of the Sphinx. A mystery. There must be something about her that has clicked with the collective unconscious to make her so ubiquitous, so spirit of the age."

Ahh, quite. But back to bendiness: It turns out the "advanced yoga pose" pictured above was not managed by Kate herself. But that is her face for certain. Ahem.

*That's quite enough of that, thanks. - Ed.
