US sculptor Daniel Edwards has made the model, which features the singer as a naked version of patron saint of animals St Francis of Assisi. She is seen standing on the BP logo, hugging an octopus and with an oil-drenched pelican in her hair.
Edwards, 45, plans to hand it to chiefs at BP’s HQ in London.
He said: “Seeing dead wildlife in my studio deepened my sorrow, that turned to disgust.”
His other previous controversial works have included a statue of Prince Harry as a dead soldier.
