V&A Museum buys iconic Rolling Stones tongue

From the NME (sorry):

The original artwork of The Rolling Stones‘ famous ‘tongue and lips’ logo has been bought by London‘s Victoria and Albert Museum.

Sold at auction in the US last week for $92,500 (£47,000), the artwork was bought by the museum with the aid of independent art charity The Art Fund, who stumped up half the cash.

The artwork is residing in the museum now.

Great!  The V&A offerings have been a bit unstimulating this year, so the sooner they get this on show the better.

    A Tongue Logo greeting card has been published by Museums & Galleries Marketing, the V & A’s new greeting card licensee. Many Paperchase stores stock the card.
