England’s most popular footballers of the last 25 years have been immortalised in a new sculpture which imitates Mount Rushmore
Artist Aden Hynes Mount Rushmore-style sculpture of four of England’s iconic players was made using fibreglass and concrete and weighs in at 60kgs, it is 1.5 metres wide and 1 metre tall.
It features David Beckham, Wayne Rooney, Paul Gascoigne (with specially built tear-duct water feature) and the talismanic Stuart Pearce.
The main thing we had to get right was the features of their faces, like David Beckham’s eyebrows, and Rooney looks like a sort of slightly lumpy potato-feel, so it’s almost taking it from reality to a sort of Spitting Image feel, so people automatically know it’s them.
It took Hynes and a team of four six weeks to fine-tune the detail, before the sculpture was unveiled in London on Tuesday.
