    Description

    A David Bowie Small Lock of Hair, 1983. A snippet of the singer's pale blonde hair, tied together with blue thread, affixed to the upper left corner of a black and white photograph depicting Bowie standing next to the current owner [a young woman who worked as a Wig Mistress at Madame Tussauds in London], she had the enviable task of recreating Bowie's 1983-era hairdo for his wax figure that was being created for the famous museum; after she snipped this chunk of Bowie's hair (so its color could be duplicated for the wax figure's wig), she kept it for a souvenir as she was a huge Bowie fan; included is a signed letter from the Wig Mistress outlining how she obtained this hair, plus some other related documents. RIP, David Bowie. (Please note the plastic frame the hair and photograph are in is dirtied due to age.)
    Hair length:2"; Photograph: 7" x 9 1/2"

    Please note a portion of the proceeds of this lot will benefit the Soi Dog Foundation; please go to soidog.org for more information.
