Los Angeles - Robbie Williams is planning to splash out on a life-size sculpture of his wife. The Take That star wants a statue of actress Ayda Field for the garden of his Mulholland Drive home in Los Angeles and has even made plans to follow it up with sculptures of the couple's beloved dogs.
A source told the Sun newspaper: ''Robbie likes the idea of a tour of his gardens telling the story of his life since moving to LA. Ayda is a big part of that, along with his reunion with the band. It's a wacky idea but, knowing Rob, will be something he gets stuck into. He's even thinking of having copies of their dogs made. Some people have garden gnomes, Robbie wants copies of his real life family.''
Robbie isn't the only member of Take That to splash out on expensive art.
Mark Owen has reportedly spent £20 000 on a painting by a British artist to celebrate his 40th birthday.
The source added: ''Mark bought a painting by a London street artist called Bambi. It's of an 80-year-old woman called Mrs Welsh, who is a character in a trendy part of London. Mark is really into urban art and has some other pieces from top UK talent. He's become a serious collector.''
