Yandex Music and Warner Music in Russia, together established the statue of Ed Sheeran reclining seductively in a pair of sunglasses, while dressed in a graffiti covered shirt and red shorts. This statue has many of the tattoos of Ed Sheeran replicated too. This indicates that fine attention on even the smallest things have been given.
However, the Moscow statue is not the first time Ed Sheeran has been inspired for a statue.
In 2016, Ed Sheeran inspired a pig statue, shown above. This was planted near Sheeran’s hometown of Framlingham. This pig was named Ed Sheer-ham.
And, now the public is encouraged to come and take pictures with the Ed Sheeran statues, to share on social media. Some fans have shown their desire on appraisals by drawing on Sheeran’s shirt and skin, adding tattoos and song lyrics.
This statue installation took place ahead of Ed Sheeran’s performance on July 19th at Otkritie Arena. This 28 year old star recently released his fourth album enlisting a bevy of names including Justin Bieber, Camila Cabello, Travis Scott and many more. This totalled to 64 000 combined sales within three days of release.
