Celebrity Mama-to-Be…in statue form

Between her baby shower and the revealing of her baby’s gender (a baby girl!), Kim Kardashian has been generating a lot of buzz among news outlets this past week. To add to all the hype surrounding Kim’s pregnancy, contemporary sculptor, Daniel Edwards recently unveiled a nude sculpture of a pregnant Kim, entitled “L.A. Fertility.”

Edwards, whose portfolio consists of controversial works such as sculpted works depicting Suri Cruise’s first bowel movement, a nude Britney Spears giving birth and statue of Angelina Jolie breast-feeding, explains his latest artistic endeavor as a response to all the criticism Kim has faced concerning her pregnancy weight gain. He was “inspired by the beauty of Kim Kardashian and felt quite off-put by the media’s criticism of her weight gain during pregnancy”.

“People tend to look at the parts, like the creases in her armpits, or how she wore a dress that makes her look like a killer whale,” Edwards further explained to Los Angeles Magazine. “I’m stripping it of the details people get stuck on, so they can see the beauty.

Although Kim has yet to comment about the statue, it has already stirred up controversy among public opinion. Share your thoughts on our Facebook!
