OLYMPIC underdog Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards has art back on the market a decade after it was first auctioned for charity.

Ski jumper Eddie, from North Woodchester, Stroud was one of 22 national celebrities who, in the summer of 2004, produced a work of art on the theme of What Makes Me Smile for the Smile Cirencester campaign.

In the art world, as on the slopes, Eddie’s efforts came a long way from podium position when the paintings were auctioned for £30 by Moore Allen & Innocent in July 2004.

His pen and ink drawing featured a bobble-hatted skier descending a mountain, called Eagle’s Leap, while on the other side of the mountain, stick figures attempted a jump.

The piece, which is signed by the artist, carries an estimate of £30 to £50. For more information visit mooreallen.co.uk.
