Golden Girl

Her weight in gold: that's Kate Moss as sculpted by British artist Marc Quinn, who had already represented the supermodel as a painted bronze contorted yogi dubbed Sphinx. His new Siren is a 110-pound solid gold statue hyped as the largest such creation since ancient Egypt. It will be soon on view at the British Museum in London, in the same gallery that houses the institution's ancient Greek sculpture collection. More than contorted yoga, that's historical splits.
