A nude pregnant sculpture of Kim Kardashian is currently on display at LAB ART Gallery in Los Angeles, according to a press release sent by Cory Allen Contemporary Art.
Artist Daniel Edwards has created the life-size sculpture titled "L.A. Fertility."
“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 in a statement. “Such criticism should be off limits.”
“We live in a media-absorbed culture where anyone can access and share a celebrity’s most intimate moments,” added Cory Allen. “Daniel visually captures ‘that’ intimacy.”
Wonder why the name Daniel Edwards sounds familiar?
Edwards's Kardashian creation is part of the “Celebrity Baby Boomer” series that first began in 2006 with the controversial sculpture "Monument to Pro-Life," which depicted a nude Britney Spears giving birth on a bearskin rug.
The unveiling of Kardashian's sculpture took place on Wednesday in L.A. Oh and that's not all! Visitors are encouraged to rub the statue's belly for good luck.
No word yet on whether Kardashian will be one of the patrons to come by and check herself out.
