Becks’ image to appear on new condom range in SpainOctober 22nd, 2009 - 11:52 am ICT by ANI
London, October 22 (ANI): An image of David Beckham will soon be printed on condom packets available in Spain.
The pic snapped by Sam Taylor-Wood belongs to the Tears of Eros art collection, which will now be used by Thyssen-Bornemisza museum in Madrid to decorate rubber contraceptives.
The snap, which shows the soccer ace sleeping, was in fact displayed at London’s National Portrait Gallery in 2004, reports the Sun.
Founder of the museum Baroness Thyssen said: “I don’t see why anyone should be scandalised. It is a way of bringing art and responsibility together.” (ANI)
