One of Britain's greatest living characters, Sir Ranulph Fiennes is to be honoured forever with an eight feet statue made entirely out of baked beans!
The masterpiece will stand in the Adventurers home city of Glasgow and will take over a week to create using 700 cans of beans.
Local artist 'Mad' Mick Mckwillie was proud to be given the chance to honour his hero, as he explained to the gathered press.
'Sir Ranulph Fiennes has had a fantastically colourful life, he's been a Soldier, an SAS Officer, Adventurer, Author and Politician. He has also become the oldest Britain ever to reach the Summit of Everest, and run 7 marathons in 7 days on 7 different Continents! Me, I'm good with beans. I love them, and decided I had to make a lasting tribute to this extraordinary man. He knows the art of adventure inside out, I can make beans into anything I want. The Statue will stand proudly for years and people from all over can come to pay their tributes to Mr. Fiennes. '
Once the stautue is completed, Mick gives it a special coating of 57 layers of a very fine sealing spray, his own recipe, which will keep the beans from harm.
When told of the tribute statue, Sir Ranulph joked, 'At least I won't be a has bean. '
