Lewis Capaldi has been snapped posing alongside a rather unusual-looking statue that was gifted to him by his old school.

The 26-year-old Scottish musician was presented with the interesting artwork by students while he paid a visit to his former school to celebrate the release of his latest album, Broken by Desire to Be Heavenly Sent.

While visiting the piece for a photo op, Lewis clearly couldn't conceal his grin, evidently a result of the funny-looking statue.

The bronze statue had bulging, googly eyes, a cheesy grin, and skinny fingers, sitting with its arms crossed.

According to The Daily Mail, pupils and teachers at St Kentigern's Academy in West Lothian, Glasgow, spent six months creating their tribute to Capaldi. Several images have been released of Lewis standing awkwardly beside the statue, pulling a variety of hilarious faces.

It comes after Lewis took part in a recent Apple interview, where he discussed his career and even the great advice he received from fellow musician Ed Sheeran.

"I think in a hand-to-hand combat, I could whip his a**," Capaldi said, "But in terms of on the charts, he's definitely top … [His advice] was more about songs and writing the best songs you can and everything else is not really important."

"[Sheeran[ was very supportive in the terms of if I had questions about having an upbeat song or having a slow song or what single to put out, or blah, blah, blah, blah, he was there as a sort of sounding board. He never really told me what to do, which I kind of appreciated as well, but he was a good suggestion box," Lewis added, via Just Jared.

He also spoke about the writing process of his new album, revealing that it was created in his parents shed after the pandemic prevented him from traveling to sunny Thailand and Australia.

"It was one of these things where I kind of started writing it as we were doing the second one. I had planned to take a wee break and go on a nice wee holiday and maybe go to Australia and travel around Australia, and maybe go to a place in Thailand, all these other places," he said.

"And obviously then covid happened and I was just confined to my parents' shed, and that's where I wrote the majority of this record … I didn't have any other choice really. I lived with my parents at the time, so it was kind of that thing. It wasn't a conscious decision, of course, but it was good. It was nice to be, I guess, comfortable. I think next time, I might go somewhere sunny," the hitmaker continued.

Wherever you go, Lewis, please take this incredible statue with you!
