England Gets Its Own Mount Rushmore made from Fibreglass

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.

Hynes explained.

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.
