Artist Marc Quinn has agreed to donate Red Sphinx, a white-bronze sculpture of supermodel Kate Moss in a "heart-shaped yoga pose with red lips," to an auction on February 14 for Red, the brand created by U2 star Bono to raise money to fight the AIDS epidemic in Africa, reports the Wall Street Journal. Another Quinn sculpture, Sphinx (not sure what the difference is between "Red Sphinx" and "Sphinx"), depicting Moss in what looks like Dwi Pada Sirsasana, received controversial coverage when it was unveiled in 2006 because Moss doesn't do yoga (a model posed for the artist) nor does she lead a very yogic lifestyle. Says Quinn, "Kate is a mirror of ourselves, a twisted Venus of our age." What do you think?
