Tights are right for Happy sculpture
Using the unlikely combination of tights and mohair from old stuffed toys, artist Michele Rashman has replicated her friend and hero Shaun Ryder in a new sculpture estimated to be worth £20,000.

The artist said that she based the creation on one of the Happy Mondays singer's most recent lines from the album Unkle Dysfunctional, where he refers to himself as a talented dog.

Ms Rashman told the Manchester Evening News: "There is something poignant about him being the performing dog, people see him as a cartoon character but really he is an incredible lyricist, a genius really."

The hosiery-based creation will be on show until Sunday at the Buy Art fair in Manchester.

Shaun Ryder collaborated with Gorillaz on Dare, the band's first number one single in the UK.
