David Bowie fans in London hope to honor the late star by building a three-story lightning-bolt statue, similar to the one featured on the late singer’s 1973 Aladdin Sane album cover.
Supporters hope to pay for the project by crowdfunding online and estimate the costs to be north of $1.23 million. So far, 165 people have raised more than $28,330 for the red-and-blue-sprayed stainless steel monument.
Organizers said they have consulted Bowie’s teams in New York and London in regards to planning the statue, which organizers plan to locate in Brixton, South London, where Bowie was born.
“Standing across the road from the equally famous Electric Avenue, the memorial will be a defining part of this most iconic neighbourhood,” reads the Crowdfunder page.
