Britney Spears Sculpture on Display (Giving Birth :eek:)

Spears Sculpture on Display Next Month



This photograph, released by sculptor Daniel Edwards on Tuesday, March 28, 2006,shows his sculpture of singer Britney Spears giving birth. The life-sized "Monument to Pro-Life: The Birth of Sean Preston," seen at the artists studio in in Moosup, Conn., will be shown at the Capla Kesting Fine Art gallery in the Williamsburg section of New York beginning April 7.

NEW YORK (AP) — A life-size sculpture of a naked Britney Spears kneeling on a bearskin rug as she gives birth will be on display next month at Brooklyn's Capla Kesting Fine Art gallery.

The sculpture is to appear next to a display case filled with anti-abortion materials. It was created by Daniel Edwards, who said he never spoke to the 24-year-old pop star or met her, and fashioned her face and figure from photographs.

"Everyone is coming at me with anger and venom, but I depicted her as she has depicted herself — seductively. Suddenly, she's a mom."

Pro-lifers normally promote bloody images of abortion. This is the image of birth," he said.

When Edwards was asked why he creates art that generates publicity by selecting subjects hyped in the media, he said: "You're bombarded with these stories. And there's a thread that winds back to the art. That's not a bad thing. People are interested in these topics, and it works for art as well."

Asked whether he's anti-abortion, Edwards said, "You nailed me. I'm not saying that I am. I wouldn't march with either pro-life or pro-choice advocates. This is not meant to be political."

Looks nothing like her. You know Brit is thick, especially in the neck area. Looks more like Ashley Judd.

I wonder what the other angle looks like? Is every skin fold and body part visible? Is there hair?

Well, this sculpture besides being weird is also ironic considering that Britney didn't deliver her baby vaginally.
I won't bother to figure out what the bear's head represents.
