Britney Spears Naked Sculpture
A nude sculpture of the pop star Britney Spears clutching a dead bear rug has been creating a bit of a stir recently. The work by Daniel Edwards, titled "Monument to Pro-Life: The Birth of Sean Preston" shows Spears naked, pregnant, and sensually bent over on her knees.
The artist said this about the pose.. "The image from behind of the kneeling pose is very strong so I felt the front of the sculpture needed an equally powerful image which is where the bearskin comes in."

"The gallery said it received about 3,000 e-mails from around the world in just a week, split between anti-abortion and abortion rights opinions."
"We also got calls from Tokyo, England, France. Some people are upset that Britney is being used for this subject matter," said gallery co-owner David Kesting. "Others who are pro-life thought this was degrading to their movement. And some pro-choice people were upset that this is a pro-life monument." ABC News
The Britney Spears nude sculpture will be exhibited at the Capla Kesting gallery in Brooklyn, USA in April.
