A signed 8ft metal sculpture of guitar legend Slash will go on display in Liverpool this weekend.
The representation of the Guns N’ Roses legend is said to have been the subject of more than 60,000 selfies during a recent residency at London’s St Pancras.
Created by Heavy Metal Sculptures (HMS), the sculpture is made entirely from scrapped car and bike metal and discarded musical instrument parts, and also showcases a Slash signature Gibson guitar.
It will be on display at the British Music Experience (BME) in the waterfront’s Cunard Building from Saturday 21 October.
Simon Weitzman, a designer and artist at HMS which created the sculpture in around 12 days, says: ‘’We are absolutely delighted and honoured to have our sculpture of Slash put on display at The British Music Experience.
“As Slash is originally a British lad it is fitting that his sculpture would come to the home of music, Liverpool and be situated at such a prestigious venue.”
The larger than life Slash sculpture also previously appeared at the British Music Awards last year.
