Six castings of the new Rossi sculpture have been completed. Three of the six editions are now sold. All free standing plinth editions. Number four is available elsewhere in the PRESENT section. Number five, the GOLD GOAT is as you can tell from the photo’s above is nearing completion.
The 2017 Yamaha M1 is painted gold, Rossi is painted gold, the wall mounted base is gold. The whole thing is…. GOLD! The only thing not gold are the shadows (which are dark red) and the number 46 on the nose of the bike. There are no logo’s or sponsors names on either Rossi or the bike, it’s all been kept very clean. So you can concentrate on the base… oh didn’t I mention the base? The 380 or so race results which are currently being cut and scratched into the surface? Rossi’s entire full race history to date….. The lot, 125’s 250’s, 500’s and Motogp, everything to date will be filling up the entire base. This is going to be one very special one-off edition. The plan was originally to complete this edition by Christmas, alas the Lotus Cortina’s took a lot longer than first planned. So everyone who is intending visiting the London Motorcycle show as Excel in February will get the chance to view this amazing edition. (Subject to finding the time to complete it!)
