All tag results for 'statue'
When we heard back in 2012 that Mitch Winehouse — the father of Amy Winehouse — wanted to honor his daughter's memory in sculpture form, we were scared the resulting creation would be a big, bronzed MESS…
BUT yay! We can breathe a sigh of relief because the artist who has been tasked with recreating the iconic singer's likeness has promised that the piece will NOT be garish or silly.
Scott Eaton recently shared:
Kanye West may have not been innerested in attending the 2013 Grammy Awards this year, as he instead chose to spend his weekend hanging out with Kim Kardashian, Will Smith and Christ The Redeemer in Brazil, but that doesn't mean his soon-to-be-baby-mama is not positively THRILLED with her man now being able to add three more awards to his already significant collection!
The reality starlet took to Twitter immediately upon hearing the delightful news, and exclaimed:
While Kim Kardashian and Kanye West posed for photos in front of the 'Christ the Redeemer' statue during their vacation in Rio De Janeiro this morning, Jesus thought "_________________________________."

Jacob Zuma, South Africa's current President, is going to honor Nelson Mandela with a statue.
We previously mentioned that Mandela is currently in the hospital with a pneumonia like lung infection.
These type of infections are never minor, especially in the elderly, but people do often overcome them.
President Zuma said:
Usain Bolt was down in Rio this week and just yesterday visited a special statue.
He saw Christ the Redeemer, the famous statue on top of a hill above Rio.
Bolt was surround by reporters and fans when the photo opportunity came up.
Jesus struck his signature pose and so Usain decided to do his pose right back!
The Bolt pose!
Lookin' good there, Usain!
Must be nice being the fastest man in the world, getting to hang out with Jesus and all. LOLz!

So the record-making, bursting bundle of colorful light took a trip to Rio's FAMED Christ the Redeemer statue (above)!
Kaypers does have quite a God-centric background, but while the statue is a religious icon, it is also culturally, historically AND architecturally important to the country of Brazil!
Way to take in some of the local sights, Katy!
We wonder… did you find inspiration for your dark & twisty third album in stone-Christ's gynormous arms?
