SAO PAULO, BRAZIL - APRIL 06: Chris Cornell of Soundgarden performs on stage during the 2014 Lollapalooza Brazil at Autodromo de Interlagos on April 6, 2014 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

After a little over a year of preparation and planning, the commissioned Chris Cornell statue by his widow, Vicky, was finally unveiled yesterday (October 7) at Seattle’s Museum of Pop Culture.

Originally scheduled to take place in August but pushed back to accommodate for larger crowds, Cornell’s three children (LillianToni and Christopher) did the unveiling honors, which can be seen around the 10:25 mark in the video below from local Fox affiliate Q13.  Vicky Cornell also delivered a speech, which can be viewed at the 3:10 mark.

Below the video are photos of the statue via the official Twitter account for Gibson Guitars.
