Amy Winehouse Statue - Camden Town Stables Market (NW1 8AB)

Experience this epic monument with virtual reality now.

Amy Winehouse (1983–2011) 

The 1.59-metre (5 ft 3 in) tall statue depicts Winehouse with her hand on her hip, wearing high heels, and with her signature beehive hairstyle.

The singer's statue also wears a Star of David necklace and on the day of the unveiling had a real red rose in her hair.The charcoal grey work was created by the British sculptor Scott Eaton, who said that it had been designed to convey Winehouse's "attitude and strength, but also give subtle hints of insecurity".

Scott Eaton had gained the commission after showing his ideas to Winehouse's father. The sculpture was not meant to reflect a particular picture or outfit but it was intended to capture an amalgamation of her appearances. The sculptor drew attention to the position of her arms where one hand rests on her hip and the other holds the edge of her skirt. Small details like this and the way the figure's foot turn inwards were intended to give a "personality" to the statue.

The statue's original intended location was in the Roundhouse music venue in nearby Chalk Farm, but due to poor public accessibility at that site the work was instead erected in the nearby Stables Market. It was unveiled by Winehouse's friend, the British actress Barbara Windsor, in the presence of Winehouse's parents, Mitch and Janis Winehouse, on 14 September 2014, which would have been the singer's 31st birthday.
