Madonna as in Ciccone

Elvis and Marilyn - maybe too old for your ten year old

Have a look at the Liverpool based artists the Singh Twins. They have their own website. Their work is inspired by and painted in the style of Indian miniature paintings and one series is about celebrity. They have painted Posh and Becks,the Osbournes and Madonna.

I think the Posh and Becks one caused a bit of a stir as they are depicted as Indian Gods.

Kurt Cobain - looks like an angel?

Slouchy Tue 22-Jul-08 22:10:06

Gotta be Elvis.

the name - Elvis reverses to LIVES; the pilgrimages to Graceland; the iconography of tat with his face on it; the desire people have to be like him; the belief that he is still alive and flipping burgers somewhere (see the name and resurrection imagery) etc.

Can you tell I saw a lecture on Elvis As Jesus as part of degree in US Studies?wink

twinsetandpearls Wed 23-Jul-08 00:13:21

I am using Elvis as my new patron saint of music.
