Ed Sheeran has been immortalized as a massive statue in Moscow. The 16-foot statue was installed at Gorky Park to mark Sheeran’s performance in the city, and shows the singer lying down on his side, his head casually rested on his right arm.
His giant likeness is dressed in red pants, white socks and a white shirt decorated in graffiti, and is also seen donning black aviators and his signature ginger hair.
The rather unusual tribute is part of a collaboration between Yandex Music and Warner Music Russia.
Fans of the star cannot get enough of the formidable figure, and have taken to social media to express their excitement over the giant statue. One Twitter user, for instance, expresses that the statue is “what dreams are made of.”
Sheeran will be performing at Moscow’s Otkritie Arena on 19 July.

Hello. A giant, 5-metre long statue of Ed Sheeran has been erected in Gorky Park, ahead of a concert. Having lived in Russia, I can't say this is the weirdest thing I've ever seen in Moscow, but it's… quite something. pic.twitter.com/I6OYge5d0y— Hannah Jane Parkinson (@ladyhaja) July 16, 2019
