URI GELLER unveiled a bright red spoon sculpture in Sonning yesterday (Monday) as he bids farewell to the village after 35 years.

The steel artwork, made by Paul Wells, has been riveted to a tree stump off the towpath near Sonning Lock and bears the illusionist?s name.

Geller, 68, said: ?I really do feel sad. The people of Sonning were amazing throughout these incredible years.

?I wanted the sculpture to remind people that Uri Geller used to walk on this towpath.?

Geller is returning to his native Israel after 45 years and he and his wife Hanna will live in an apartment in Old Jaffa, Tel Aviv.

About 20 people attended the sculpture unveiling ceremony.

Mr Wells said: ?It represents Uri for what he?s well known for and the hole in the bowl of the spoon represents his absence from Sonning and the community.?
