Charles Saatchi Statue in London is Ready to Strangle You
Anonymous British Artist Creates Life-Size Model After Nigella Lawson Incident
Jul 31, 2013
Charles Saatchi is ready to strangle anybody who dares get to close to him -- or at least, this life-sized statue of him currently on display at the Jealous Gallery in London's Crouch End. Created by an anonymous British artist, the work is titled "Playful Tiff," which is how Mr. Saatchi described the widely publicized incident where he "strangled" wife Nigella Lawson at a London restaurant earlier this summer. The statue features a red-hued Mr. Saatchi, complete with devilish horns, and arm outstretched. Viewers of the piece are encouraged to place their necks in his hand and snap a photo.
