Popular singer Shakira has been honored with a statue in her home country. On Tuesday, the Grammy winner, 46, shared an Instagram post announcing that a bronze statue depiction was created and placed in her hometown of Barranquilla, Colombia.
The statue, which channels the singer’s infamous “Hips Do not Lie” dance moves from her 2005 music video, was made by artist Yino Márques.
Shakira posted a photo carousel that included images of her family posing at the new landmark’s site. What each picture was capturing was described in the singer’s caption.
In the first picture, she wrote in the caption that it was her mother’s birthday. William Mebarak Chadid and Nidia Ripoll Torrado are her parents.
In the photo, the singer’s parents are photographed at the feet of the 21-foot-tall statue. “It makes me happy to share this with my parents and especially my mother on her birthday.” Shakira wrote in the caption.
The singer then shared a photo of her parents and brothers with the Mayor of Barranquilla, as well as a solo shot of the statue and the statue’s dedication.
“This is too much for my little heart,” Shakira wrote of the dedication. The dedication shared details about Shakira’s life and celebrated the singer for her impact on music.
“A heart that composes, hips that do not lie, an unmatched talent, a voice that moves masses and bare feet that march for the good of childhood and humanity,” read the dedication.
On September 29, Spotify celebrated the “Inevitable” singer, who is currently the most streamed female Latin artist in Spotify history, with her day in advance of the artist’s upcoming statue.
