Very Naked and Very Pregnant Kim Kardashian Immortalized In Sculpture
From the man who brought you Suri Cruise's first poop and Britney Spears giving birth on all fours on a bearskin rug, comes a statue of a nude and totally preggers Kim Kardashian.Artist Daniel Edwards unveiled "L.A. Fertility" yesterday at LAB ART Gallery in Los Angeles, and we're sure it will go down in art history textbooks as a 21st century version of the Venus of Willendorf. The sculpture is described thus in press materials:
The life-size full-figured nude Kardashian sculpture titled “L.A. Fertility” stands curvaceous and proud, with lactiferous breasts, protruding navel and legs akimbo, and features a voluminous belly “designed to entice visitors to give a respectful rub for good luck and success,” says publicist Cory Allen.
Edwards said this of his muse: "I was inspired by the beauty of Kim Kardashian and felt quite put-off by the media’s criticism of her weight gain during pregnancy. Such criticism should be off limits."Edwards obviously has a thing for celebrity pregnancy. There will also be a bronze sculpture of "Baby Kimye" and the also yet unborn Royal Baby.
Photos of the sculpture started circulating yesterday, but somehow Kardashian has managed to not comment on the sculpture via Twitter.
