A life-size bronze statue of late singer Amy Winehouse is being planned to be erected at a music venue next to where she lived.
The statue – which shows the singer wearing her trademark beehive hair – will be placed at the Roundhouse in Chalk Farm, just a mile from where Amy lived.
The application sent to Camden council said of the statue:
The artwork aims to capture the vitality of Amy and her music by faithfully rendering her beauty and iconic sense of style.
The design has Amy relaxing on the Roundhouse terrace gazing back at Camden Town.
The piece is carefully composed with naturalism.. Her long flowing hair will be represented sculpturally with a touch of art nouveau styling. Other important style and wardrobe consideration include earrings, dress, shoes and a rose in her hair, all selected and approved by members of her family.
It was also stated that the statue would be kept under control and not become a shrine to the singer:
We will not be allowing a ‘shrine’ to accumulate on the pavement or on the Roundhouse terrace itself. Signage will be erected politely request that visitors do not leave gifts, any items left will be cleared on a daily basis.
If all goes ahead as planned, the statue will be unveiled at the Roundhouse on 14 September later this year, Amy Winehouse’s birthday.
