We are used to paintings and pictures of the King to celebrate the coronation, however have you seen this before?

Robb Banks, from Shoreham, has carved a cuttlefish bone to resemble King Charles.

He used a toothpick to intricately chisel away at the bone, which he said took him three tries to perfect.

Robb said: "I've carved cuttlefish before, and I thought why not do it for the coronation?

"I wanted to celebrate the new King with a bit of inspiration from Spitting Image."

Robb, an interior designer in London, said he finished work early and the perfect opportunity arose to celebrate the big day.

He said: "I thought I might as well use my spare time, so I sat in my front garden and made this."

Cuttlefish bones wash up on shores around the world, and are a common sight for many on the Sussex coast.

"They are brittle and fragile, and if you get it wrong a big lump will fall off.

"It was quite tricky to get the hang of it, as you've got to find the grain of it." he said.

He also carved a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II after she died last year.

Robb said the reaction to his carvings has been mixed. "People find it quite funny" Robb said. "There are loads of people positive about it, however I did put it in a Facebook group earlier and it was removed very quickly, so I think they might have found it a bit offensive."

However, his post has received over 1.3 thousand likes on the Brighton Skies facebook group. One commenter suggested the artwork should be a part of the crown jewels.

Robb will be celebrating the coronation with some friends this afternoon. Robb added: "The coronation is amazing, and you don't see much of the fanfare these days, with the diamonds and gold carriages."
