Sean Connery - Connery Statue Erected In Estonia
A bronze sculpture in honour of Oscar-winning actor SIR Sean Connery has been unveiled in the Estonian capital of Tallinn.
The screen legend was honoured on Thursday (27Jan11) when a bust baring his likeness was unveiled outside whiskey sampling society The Scottish Club, where members honour "Scots who have made a difference".
The $14,000 (£9,330) sculpture by Estonian artist Tiiu Kirsipuu was financed through private donations.
British Ambassador Peter Carter attended the unveiling ceremony, telling guests: "Sir Sean Connery is, without a doubt, an icon. He is variously known as James Bond or the sexiest man of the century. He's a great British actor, a great Scot actor and a great symbol for Scotland."
Connery follows in the footsteps of 18th century poet Robert Burns with The Scottish Club honour.
