Amy Winehouse bare chest and cast in Bronze

Amy Winhouse Immortalised
Looks more like Chocolate

Daniel Edwards, the famed sculptor who sculpted the naked statue of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, has now honored the late Amy Winehouse with a bronze sculpture featuring the singer topless.
Edwards' representative, Cory Allen, explained that the topless sculpture of Amy Winehouse, which shows the singer quite bony and flat-chested, was created to warn about the effects eating disorders can have on a person's body.
Allen said, "The portrait of Amy is dedicated to those struggling with addiction and eating disorders. Nobody should have to go through what Amy went through."
The sculpture, named by the artist 'Memorial Portrait for Amy Winehouse', was requested by Facebook fans. Edwards said, "I thought of her as a beautifully delicate fairytale princess, waiting to be rescued from fame and addiction, but her prince never came. I had always expected to sculpt her portrait, but I was waiting for her to put some of her troubles behind her. She had made me pay attention to contemporary music again."
The early death of Amy Winehouse had an effect on many, and lots of artists, including Edwards, expressed their grief through their art. Art and music can speak volumes about issues that can be difficult to articulate through the spoken language. While Amy will be remembered for her struggles, she will also be remembered, and will live on, through her musical talent and her special and unique voice.
