Rihanna visited a headless statue of herself for the ultimate selfie Wednesday.
The surreal moment came about when Rihanna decided to explore the ninth Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art, the international art exhibit, after playing a show in Berlin. The statue is hard to miss. Titled Ewaipanoma (Rihanna), it is a giant version of the singer kneeling down while clad in a bikini and sunglasses, absent a head, but with her face emblazoned on her chest. It’s almost a story high and is stationed outside the Kunst-Werke Institute for Contemporary Art in the city’s hip Mitte district.
The enormous likeness was created by Colombian artist Juan Sebastián Peláez, who was inspired by a paparazzi photo of the singer playing on the beach.
Rihanna is clearly taking the statue as a badge of honor. Not only did she post her trip to find herself (so to speak) on Snapchat, but she also documented the visit on Instagram, crouching in front of the statue and replicating the pose, forever upping the celebrity selfie game.
