SCULPTOR TO CREATE 12-FOOT-TALL HEAD OF PRINCESS DI AS TRIBUTE

FAVERSHAM, KENT, England (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The “Di” is being cast for a 12-foot-tall statue of the late Princess Diana’s head.

The giant head is the idea of sculptor John Houlston of Faversham, England, who says he wants to create the huge noggin out of either white resin or bronze with a silver coating.

He hopes to complete the piece by the end of the summer and says when it’s done, the finished head will probably have a rough texture to prevent it from looking too smooth and “...too much like Disneyland.”

Houlston will donate the plus-size Princess to one of Diana’s favorite charities: the National AIDS Trust in London.

The AIDS Trust says it hasn’t yet decided what it will do with the giant head, but odds are it will probably be displayed for the public to admire.
