Sculptor Michele Rashman, wife of ex-Simply Red and Happy Mondays manager Elliot, is "relieved" that her sculpture of Shaun Ryder as 'talented dog' failed to attract a buyer at last weekend's inaugural Buy Art Fair held at Urbis in Manchester.

"I'm glad it didn't sell because I'd like to tour it round the country a bit first".

But why didn't the work of art, entitled 'Hey Shawarma', realise its modest GBP 20,000 price tag?

Cerysmatic viewers debate amongst yourselves after a sneak preview in the Manchester Evening News.

Michelangelo's David or Hancock's Aphrodite?

You decide.
