Students at Lewis Capaldi’s old secondary school built a sculpture of him.
The statue was made by the students at St Kentigern’s Academy in Blackburn, West Lothian – the secondary school that the singer-songwriter used to attend.
Made by a handful of students and staff members, the project took six months to complete, and involved all those involved being sworn to secrecy.
Finished in bronze, the unique tribute was presented to Capaldi May 21, and the 26-year-old star was seen happily posing with the final product.
According to Bryan Johnston, the principal art teacher at the academy, the statue wasn’t meant to be a precise representation of Capaldi, but instead take more of an “unusual” approach – incorporating gigantic bulging eyes and noticeably thin fingers.
