    Heavy metal: Kate Moss has been immortalised in a series of sculptures

    Seven sculptures of Kate Moss in yoga poses could fetch up to £1 million when they are sold in New York.

    The bronzes, which include one of her with her legs stretched behind her head, went on display at the Mary Boone gallery in Manhattan
    They are by Marc Quinn, famous for his sculpture in Trafalgar Square of Alison Lapper, a woman without arms and fully developed legs, and are estimated to fetch £137,500 each.

    The white-painted bronzes are part of the “Sphinx” exhibition - socalled because of Moss’s mysterious persona.

    Although highly realistic, the sculptures are not portraits.

    Quinn said they represent "an image, and the way it is twisted and sculpted by our collective desire".
    He said the yoga pose sculpture showed Moss as "a knotted Venus of our age

    A polished bronze named "Sphinx (Road to Enlightenment)," shows Moss sitting in the lotus position.
    The model did not get into the contortions herself - Quinn used her head and face but drew the positions from a yoga expert.
