Conor McGregor will receive a pretty impressive present for his 30th birthday: a massive, marble and silicone statue of himself, valued at over £50,000 (approximately $66,350).

 

This statue, titled ATLAS, was carved by Birmingham-based, Lithuanian-born “hyperrealistic interpretative sculptor” Edgar Askelovic. Weighing in at more than 200 pounds, this statue will be displayed at London, England’s JD Malat Gallery from July 14 to September 30. It will then be gifted to McGregor, who has already accepted the gift.

“He is a phenomenon of our time – not just a smart athlete, but also a visionary,” Askelovic told Versus of this work. “To create the piece, I looked back to antiquity, when athletes were immortalized in sculptures as gods.

 

“It’s up to you what you see in it,” Askelovic added. “You can see him as a prisoner, or a god, or just as a person.”

(Real hair was used to make the figure's beard and hair)

 

“I combined some details from a Michelangelo statue with modern day graffiti to capture the present day’s warrior sensibilities.”

 

 

 

So any of you who thought Conor's ego might finally be deflating a bit this is sure to pump it back up lol

I've done sculptures before. Mostly small scale faces, nude females, animals, creatures and hands. I've only done them in clay, Fimo and Super Sculpey. Always wanted to learn how to cast and do 3D /scan/print with my 3D background because i've done a ton of 3D sculpting with Blender & Zbrush.

 

It would be cool to have something like that even if it is narcissistic. I wouldn't want anything that big though even if i had McGregor F U money.

Bish I want a 100 metre corridor full of statues and art pieces of myself between my front door and the rest of my mansion. 

 

 

LOL I kid I kid. I wouldn't be surprised if Kanye has a setup of himself like that though.

As much as i love art if i did have stupid loot my place would look eccentric AF. I'd have themed rooms with all kinds of accent lighting, neon, lights, LED's, black lights and glow in the dark art work with all kinds of eye candy & sculptures n chit like that. A lot of it i'd create myself because i love doing art and it would give me something to do. 

 

Would be like a big @ss fun house night club or moody photo shoot type atmosphere. I'd definitely have a long hall type throne room with a big custom throne and pool in the middle for all my bishes to come out of the pool and come worship king daddy's septre lol

 

I'd be like the Dan Bilzerian of the art world and would flaunt just as much to promote myself if you catch my drift.  So yeah i'd probably be a real POS with that kind of money lol. 

 

Honestly though if i ran into millions i'd probably be travelling most of the time. At least the first 2 yrs that's all i'd do.

I can imagine your guests turn up and you're nowhere to be found, as they cautiously creep forwards into the house you jump out of nowhere in your denim ninja attire

Oh that. I'd have cardboard cutouts of me & my ninja attire that would pop up. Each ninja pop-up would have a riddle to solve to get to the next one with a line saying something spooky to them.  :ph34r:

 

If they solved all of them a loud speaker would come on and say "You are worthy to enter my domain & receive your gift. Enter if you dare but hurry before it's too late....muhahahaha". 

 

Cue automated door opening with fog smoke rolling out the door & various horror FX lights, sounds and suspenseful music playing inside. 

 

So yeah i'd screen all my guest like that. You'd really have to wanna be a friend.  :P

Robbery

I agree, we all got robbed of watching him lose both titles without a single defense legitimately.

So do they ship this straight to Ray Borg's house in the lawsuit?

It doesn't match the decor at his crackhouse.
