Kate Moss is fashion's golden girl – literally!

On Thursday, a British artist debuted his solid-gold statue of the supermodel holding a complex yoga pose. (Until now, only the face had been revealed.)

The sculptor, Marc Quinn, claimed his life-size "Siren" is worth $18 million. He compared the artwork – part of the Statuephilia exhibition, which opens Friday at London's British Museum – to the famous golden mask of Tutankhamun.

"Like that mask, Siren is an image that glows and gives out love and light," he said in a statement. "But [it also] remains completely implacable and silent."
