Earlier this week, it was reported that a giant Lemmy statue went up at the heavy metal festival Hellfest. This statue was created by Caroline Brisset, and it also contains a portion of Lemmy’s ashes. This brief documentary shares the work that went into making this Lemmy statue. It is an amazing work of art and a brilliant tribute to one of the most talented human beings to ever grace the arts.
You can find the documentary about the creation of the statue below. Per a press release sent out earlier this week regarding the unveiling of the Lemmy statue:
“The legendary Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister, founder of Motörhead and Grammy Award winning cultural icon, has had a portion of his ashes enshrined at this year’s Hellfest Festival in Clisson, France within a new, giant statue of the man, and the official ceremony to recognize this unique memorialization will occur on June 23, 2022. With band mates Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee present, it is the perfect moment to honor Lemmy’s life. After
“Hellfest was one of Lemmy’s favorite festivals (Motörhead played the first ever Hellfest and were staples of the festival ever since), and the band have always had a tremendous bond with their French rock’n’roll family. It is therefore fitting that Lemmy will forever be present at the site, with fans able to congregate and pay their respects to him at every Hellfest from here on out. This ceremony will also give fans an opportunity to participate in their own memorialization of Lemmy and see a miniature replica of the custom urn that houses Lemmy’s ashes at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Hollywood California.
“For fans that wish to share their own tributes, memories, experiences or pay their respects, can post using the hashtag #LemmyLivesAtHellfest.
“All Hail (the immortal legend) Lemmy!”
