Ringo Starr is spreading peace and love in statue form for charity. The life-size statues are of his “Peace And Love” hand gesture, which he says represents his message of “positivity and light” to the world. The statues are just under 10 inches tall and weigh three-and-a-half pounds, and only 500 will be made.
250 of the pieces will be made from stainless steel, and the other 250 will be made from bronze; the stainless steel version is priced at $5k, while the bronze will sell for $2k. Proceeds from the online sale at Julien’s Auctions will go to The Lotus Foundation, which supports projects involving substance abuse, domestic abuse victims, homelessness, and animals in need.
