A sculpture inspired by The Beatles is set to make it debut at The Beatles Story in Liverpool this month.

The work is by Russian artist Nikolay Rogatnev and is subtitled ’The Music of The Beatles Unites The Earth’, and will celebrate the relationship between the band and Russia.

Rogatnev is hoping the sculpture will be exhibited across the world in important Beatles-related locations such as
Hamburg, New York and Liverpool

Valentin Bayoukansky, who came up with the concept for the sculpture, said: “There were four Beatles and we want to place a sculpture in four different counties to show how the people of the world were united by their wonderful music."

Meanwhile, Managing Director of the Beatles Story Jerry Goldman said:” The importance of The Beatles to so many Russian music fans can never be understated. In the last few years we have seen the number of Russian visitors rise with the introduction of our Russian audio guide.”

The Beatles Story is set to expand in 2008, and include rooms focusing on the solo careers of George Harrison and Ringo Starr.
