Famous Sculptor Creates Beautiful Bust Of Pop Icon Amy Winehouse

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Sculptor Daniel Edwards is famous for creating works of art that make us wonder what planet he`s on, but he set the craziness aside this time when he made a bust in tribute to the late Amy Winehouse."



A true artist doesn`t pander to the great unwashed; great art isn`t always aesthetically pleasing. Daniel Edwards is well known for pushing the envelope, certainly the world wasn`t clamoring for a sculpture of a nude Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez -- one of his most controversial creations.

I was a bit unnerved by the Bieber/Gomez work of art, what the hell I was traumatized by the monstrosity. But Edwards has redeemed himself with his beautiful tribute to Amy Winehouse.

The bust of Amy Winehouse looks more normal than the troubled singer looked in real life. The nude bust of the pop icon features a bird and lillies in her hair -- an improvement of the real Winehouse who probably had mice and lice in her hair.

Edwards` bust is a fitting tribute to one of the greatest singers of our generation. Click on this link to see the beautiful bust of the pop princess:
