David Adickes’ famous Beatles statues are for sale and have found a new home until they’re bought
Four concrete lads from Liverpool are currently standing in the backyard of one of Houston’s most popular breweries. This week 8th Wonder Brewery took custody, albeit temporary, of renowned artist David Adickes’ famous Beatles statues that once stood outside his SculpturWorx workshop off Taylor and I-10. Adickes tells Chron.com that the set is for sale for $350,000.
The statues are currently for sale but 8th Wonder’s Ryan Soroka says that the quartet are under contract to be on display in the WonderWorld event space behind the brewery.
Sculptor David Adickes said on Tuesday he is selling the set for $350,000. They are about 36 feet tall and weigh four tons each. Ringo on the drums is slightly shorter and weighs a bit more.
The 90-year-old who once used to pal around with Picasso created the Beatles statues out of concrete and wire about 10 years ago. They were finally removed from his old workshop space in 2015 and became somewhat of a local attraction until then.
