Justin Bieber fans, take note: this replica of the pop superstar’s head, is worth $1.023 million at the current price of gold. 1st Gold Bullion, the gold bullion and precious metal specialist, recently completed a extraordinary project in which a life-size replica head of the tween heartthrob’s was sculpted out of gold.
The sculpture needed to employ 10 artists who created the mould using a pate out of clay which was then filled with molten gold, after putting in 10 weeks of toil, out of which 3 weeks were needed to get Bieber’s trademark hairstyle right. According to the 1st Gold Bullion, the gold used in the hair of Justin Bieber alone is worth over $250,000.
Given the way gold prices are going, the sculpture could continue to increase in value long after Bieber’s fame has fizzled. [1st Gold Bullion]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HZueklqurE&feature=player_embedded
