This is a sculpture of Kate Moss by Marc Quinn, also the artist who created the sculptures of himself out of his own frozen blood and the sculpture of his son's head out of the placenta. I chose to search Quinn because he had such odd art work and I found this. I thought it was interesting that there are so many artists that decide to create portraits of Kate Moss also. This one is especially interesting because she is contorted into such an odd way wearing only underwear. It was made in bronze and then painted white. When asked, Quinn said that he named the sculpture so because he said Kate is like a contemporary version of a sphinx. She is a mystery.
