Artist crafts Doddie Weir portrait from 10,000 stamps
An artist has made a portrait of Scottish rugby legend Doddie Weir entirely from 10,000 stamps.
Michael McGee's work, which is 2m (6.5ft) by 1.2m (3.9ft) in size, features stamps from around the world - including every country Doddie played against.
Many of the stamps are more than 60 years old and include 10 Penny Reds and 10 Jubilee Half Pennies from the reign of Queen Victoria.
Mr McGee said he was inspired to create the piece after Doddie revealed in 2017 that he had been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
The rugby icon, who won 61 caps for Scotland and also starred for the British Lions, has since set up his own My Name'5 Doddie foundation.
Mr McGee's stamp artwork was auctioned for £10,000 on Friday evening, with funds raised going to the foundation and to Doddie's former school, Erskine Stewart's Melville.
The Scottish artist, who now lives in Trinidad, said: "I was back home in Scotland recently and I saw Doddie Weir on television and was moved by his story."
