A pig-shaped statue of Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran said he will sign and write a personal message to the highest bidder of the “Ed Sheer-Ham”.

A pig-shaped statue of Ed Sheeran has sold for £6200 (Php 388,730) at a charity auction in Ipswich, United Kingdom.

Apparently there was a charity auction held at Ipswich to raise money for the St. Elizabeth Hospice. Ed Sheeran played a major role in the charity as he donated 12 bags of his clothes to the auction, which included the suits he wore to the BRIT Awards and the Grammys in recent years.

An item, not donated by Sheeran, but instead inspired by the artist was the highlight of the auction. A pig-shaped statue - complete with a representation of Sheeran's ginger hair - has sold for almost Php 400,000. The statue has been called "Ed Sheer-Ham", and the songwriter has said that he will sign the winning lot for its new owner.

See the picture below.

"Ed Sheer-Ham" was just one of 39 pig-shaped statues to be made for the Pigs Gone Wild trail in Ipswich. Sheeran's statue was designed by the Norfolk artist Martin J Wall.
