The former Beatle will offer the pieces to be sold online for charity from Tuesday, November 22.

Stainless steel statues are available for £4,200 ($5,044), while 250 bronze artworks are offered for just under £1,700 ($2,041).

"It’s been over five decades since Ringo Starr made the universally recognized hand gesture of Peace and Love as his signature greeting and enduring message to the world," said Beverly Hills-based Julien's Auctions.

They add that it is "a transmission of positivity and light that the legendary musician has sent off across the universe through his landmark musical catalog as a solo artist, Beatle and frontman of his All Starr Band."
