A Malmesbury street artist has paid his own unique tribute to the Queen by creating a special mural.

Luke Hollingworth, also known as Syd of The Stencil Shed, drew inspiration from the Queen's well-documented love of corgis to create the artwork on Park Road. 

He used neon graffiti style wings and a crown to illustrate the corgis ascension.

Writing on The Stencil Shed's Facebook page Luke said: "I felt compelled to spray paint something to mark the Queen's passing. 

"Wasn’t particularly expecting to get emotional about the occasion but upon reading all the stories about Her Majesty’s love of animals and corgis in particular this idea came to mind.

"I particularly loved the various anecdotes describing how the Queen would use the corgis as an ice breaker and to find common ground with people at formal functions." 

Luke has also started work on individual corgi artworks and eventually plans on making 70 to commemorate the Queen's 70 years as monarch.

"It’s been so heartwarming that my tribute to the Queen has been so positively received," he added.

The Queen owned more than 30 corgis during her reign and was known for her love of the breed. Most of the, were descended from her first corgi, Susan, who was gifted to her on her 18th birthday in 1944.

Following her death it has been announced that Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson will look after the Queen's corgis.

Luke's tributes comes just a matter of weeks after he made headlines with his depiction of another famous animal.

His mural of the emu that helped foil the getaway of a suspected drink-driver in Malmesbury has adorned the shop window where they crashed for the last month.

Now that the window of antiques shop Antiquary has been repaired, the mural has been removed. It is currently on display at Malmesbury Primary School and will eventually be auctioned off to raise money for Malmesbury Animal Sanctuary - where the real emu resides.
