Artist Daniel Edwards has a thing for capturing celebrities in their more “intimate” moments. After making a splash on in 2006 with a naked statue of Britney Spears giving birth, Edwards has plans to make a statue out of another pregnant celebrity- Kim Kardashian.
While Kim has gotten a lot of negative attention in regards to her pregnancy, this statue is a positive (though slightly bizarre) ode.
"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," Edwards said (via Complex) "Such criticism should be off limits." The artist's publicist also added, "We live in a media-absorbed culture where anyone can access and share a celebrity's most intimate moments. Daniel visually captures that intimacy."
The statue, to be named “L.A. Fertility,” will be on display at LAB Art Gallery in Los Angeles on June 5. Viewers will be able to rub Kim’s belly for good luck. The exhibit will also display a statue of Kimye’s unborn baby sleeping next to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s unborn child.
