A life-size bronze statue of the late Amy Winehouse is due to be unveiled near her home in Camden on September 14 - her 31st birthday.
According to The Mirror, the figure of the Back To Black singer comes complete with her trademark beehive hair style and sees Amy posing with her hand on her hip.
The original plan was for the statue to stand in the Roundhouse, but it will now take pride of place in the nearby Stables Market.
Her father Mitch explained: "The Roundhouse would have been great as Amy and the Foundation have a great affinity with the venue, but it would not always have been accessible for fans, we wanted people to be able to see it, touch and interact.
"Now Amy will oversee the comings and goings of her home town forever. Amy was in love with Camden and it is the place her fans from all over the world associate her with."
He added: "The family have always been keen to have a memorial for her in the place she loved the most, which will provide fans a place to visit and attract people to the area."
The statue, which has been made by sculptor Scott Eaton, will be unveiled by her family and friends.
