Two David Bowie Neon portraits are featured in the reception of "The Rabbit in the moon" restaurant at the National Football Museum in Manchester. The restaurant which occupies the 5th and 6th floors of the Urbis building, is owned by ex Manchester United footballers Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs, who have teamed up with Michelin starred chef Michael O Hare to create a "Space Age Asian" dining experience. The Bowie portraits were among several pieces snapped up by Gary Neville at the "Golden Years" exhibition in Manchester last November.
