The Beatles: Aphrodite statue from historic gig being auctioned

A classical statue which featured in a groundbreaking performance by The Beatles is going under the hammer.

The 5ft (1.5m) fibreglass Aphrodite was seen by up to 700 million TV viewers worldwide as the group took part in the first live satellite broadcast in 1967.

The Beatles represented the UK as John Lennon wrote All You Need Is Love just days before to reflect the event’s Summer of Love and flower power theme.

The Greek goddess of love statue will be auctioned in Liverpool on 28 August.

The statue, which is coated with a cement-like finish to simulate a stone appearance, is estimated to fetch between £15,000 and £20,000.
