Re: Nude Britney Spears Giving Birth Statue - Monument to Pro-Life

Not a bad sculpture, but a bit silly in my opinion. She's supported only by her knees and the hands loosely holding the bearskin ears. The image is of the clay; no time for casting because the purpose is newsworthiness and not art.

Obviously, we are in for a long ride with imagery of all sorts catching the crowd's attention. The artist benefits, the salesperson benefits, an attached promotional group benefits in this case, the medium or media benefit, ... .

It reminds me of circuses coming to town as when I was much younger, the town was small, and the daily routine included school, cutting the grass, making dinner, doing the wash, gathering the daily bread, ... .

Life requires diversion, and nowadays diversions are fast and odd. I have to admire the sculptor and the gallery for their alertness. Tempus fugit!
