Britney sprog drop sculpture wows New York

No IT angle, but lactiferous breasts aplenty

We're not quite sure what to make of this, but some bright spark has decided to celebrate the birth of Britney Spears' sprog Sean in sculptural form.

Fair enough, you might say. However, the result is unusual, to say the least, showing the talented chanteuse on all fours clasping a dead bear's ears while attempting to eject said infant.

Britney drops sprog

Yes, it's not for the faint-hearted, to be sure. Although the Capla Kesting Fine Art website responsible for alerting the world to sculptor Daniel Edwards' work has no problems giving us a quick gander at Britney's "lactiferous breasts and protruding naval", we're mercifully spared the "posterior view that depicts widened hips for birthing and reveals the crowning of baby Sean's head" - in the photo gallery at least.

There is, naturally, a symbolic meaning to the Brit sprog drop masterwork - and it's all about "Pro-Life", as the blurb explains:

Dedication of the life-sized statue celebrates the recent birth of Spears' baby boy, Sean, and applauds her decision of placing family before career. "A superstar at Britney's young age having a child is rare in today's celebrity culture. This dedication honors Britney for the rarity of her choice and bravery of her decision," said gallery co-director, Lincoln Capla.

Oh dear, oh dear. Edwards apparently studied various Britney resources for the project - including the "wax figure of a pole-dancing Britney at Las Vegas' Madame Tussauds and 'Britney wigs' characterizing various hairstyles of the pop-princess from a Los Angeles hairstylist". He denied using a bootleg copy of Britney's birthing video to check up on the intimate detailing, so we can't be certain whose posterior view gallery visitors will actually enjoy.

Another thing Edwards seems to have rejected as source material is a photo of Ms Spears' face, since we're not convinced this looks anything like the poor girl. Still, gripping bearskin rug while popping a brat can do strange things to one's expression.

One last thing: the bearskin rug is intended to "convey the commemoration of the traditional bearskin rug baby picture". And yes, Edwards did study the real Canadian deal, just to be certain. Frankly, given Edwards' evident talent for faces, we're amazed it doesn't look more like a seal pup. ®
