Marc Quinn has unveiled his latest artwork – a huge portrait of a heavily pregnant Lara Stone
Lara Stone is the latest celebrity to be depicted in one of Marc Quinn’s controversial pieces of art.
The supermodel has been immortalised in a huge pregnancy portrait, which was unveiled for the first time at the 55th Venice Biennale festival yesterday.
Lying completely naked on a bed of red meat, the 29-year-old model can be seen cradling her huge baby bump as she stares intently at the viewer. She’s sporting a gorgeous glow and natural make-up, with her blonde hair styled loosely over her shoulders.
Lara gave birth to her first baby with David Walliams, a son, on 6 May. Clearly proud of her naked pregnancy body – and quite rightly too – the model shared an image from the unveiling on her Twitter feed last night.
The new mum follows in the footsteps of Kate Moss with her artwork. The model was famously immortalised in a solid gold statue by Marc Quinn back in 2008. The 50kg creation features Kate in a yoga pose and is said to be the largest gold statue to be made since Ancient Egyptian times. It’s now worth a huge £1.5 million.
