With the Queen's Diamond Jubilee this weekend - plus a new touring exhibition, The Queen: Art & Image, making its latest stop at the National Portrait Gallery in London - we've rounded-up a few of our favourite bits of Queen-inspired artwork, including a few images that can be seen in person in the Art & Image exhibition.
Haribo commissioned food sculptor, Paul Baker, to create a portrait of the Queen using sweets. Over 13,000 individual pieces were used, from Heart Throbs to create the union jack backdrop, and Friendship Rings to capture the detail of Her Majesty’s gown.
To mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and their support of The Big Jubilee Lunch, Douwe Egberts collaborated with British Micro-Sculptor, Willard Wigan, to create, what is believed to be, the world's smallest ever portrait of the Queen on a coffee bean. The miniature masterpiece of the Queen's head is so small it is invisible to the naked eye, can only be seen using a magnifying glass, and was created by slowing down the artist's heartbeat to avoid hand tremors.
Nic Joly spent three days making this miniature masterpiece of the Queen. The stamp-sized version of Her Majesty is made from clay, wire, thread and paper with the finishing touches applied in paint.

To mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, acclaimed light artist, Chris Levine and luxury goods brand, Asprey, created a new work based on his celebrated portraiture of the Queen. The Queen’s diamond diadem, worn by Her Majesty for the procession to her Coronation in 1953, features within the installation and has been recreated by Asprey from 1000 white brilliant cut diamonds, painstakingly set in platinum by Asprey’s exacting craftsmen and overlaid onto the original, three dimensional image.
