Kate Moss, Big as Life, in Bronze

Kate Moss as Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, is the new subject of Marc Quinn, the sculptor who made news last year with his marble statue of a naked, disabled, pregnant woman for the long-empty plinth in Trafalgar Square in the heart of London, The Sunday Telegraph of London reported. Mr. Quinn, who described Ms. Moss, right, as ''the iconic beauty of our age,'' is working on five life-size bronzes of her in contorted yoga positions with her feet behind her ears, the newspaper said. It added that they are to be unveiled in two weeks at a gallery in Groningen, the Netherlands, and are expected to be a highlight of Mr. Quinn's exhibition in April 2007 at the Mary Boone Gallery in New York. Ms. Moss, who has been not only a fashion model but also an artists' model for more than a decade, was the subject of a Lucien Freud portrait that sold for more than $7 million in 2004. Ms. Moss, who is planning to write an autobiography, was interviewed by the police in England last week about reports of cocaine use at a studio where her former boyfriend, Pete Doherty, the oft-arrested rocker, was recording.
