Marc Quinn (born 1964) is a British artist better known for “Alison Lapper Pregnant” (2007), has used blood, ice and faeces to make sculptures that display a preoccupation with the mutability of the body and the dualisms that define human life: spiritual and physical, surface and depth, cerebral and sexual. With “Sphinx” (2006), Quinn unveiled a sculpture of supermodel Kate Moss in a yoga position. As with “Siren” (2008), he repeated his studies of Moss, this time in solid 18 carat gold. The life-size sculpture was promoted as "the largest gold statue since ancient Egypt", “Siren” was identified as using a similar strategy as Damien Hirst's diamond skull.
