The first ever David Bowie statue. Called ‘Earthly Messenger’ and created by sculptor Andrew Sinclair, the life-size sculpture was unveiled by singer-songwriter Howard Jones on 25 March 2018 and resides under the historic Arches in Aylesbury’s market square.
The bronze sculpture features two main figures; Bowie as Ziggy Stardust circa 1973 and again in his 2002 blue suit period. Behind these two main figures are most of the main characters that David portrayed in his long career including references to Space Oddity, Hunky Dory, Ashes to Ashes, Aladdin Sane, Labyrinth, The Man Who Fell to Earth, Life on Mars, Young Americans, The Next Day and Blackstar. Speakers mounted above the life-size statue play a Bowie song on the hour during the day.
