David Bowie has bought a collection of eerily life-like masks of his own face created by the artist Mark Wardel based on mould of the artist made in the 70s, which was taken to promote the film The Man Who Fell To Earth. 

 The masks had been available to buy from the Victoria and Albert Museum for the modest price of £125 but apparently Bowie liked them so much he's bought the entire collection and has placed an order for more still to come! 

Possibly the strangest piece of news to come from this is the fact that David Bowie hires art 'scouts' to actively go out and find pieces of artwork inspired by his work.

Perhaps he bought them all so that no one else would have them...?
