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

I think it is very bizarre and although I appreciate the beauty of childbirth I think that there are many ways of portraying a mother and child that are much more beautiful but much less shocking, which is more the point of this piece. Allot of what art is about today is marketing and using a celebrity and a cause is a standard approach, I don’t think that this is about pro-life nor is it about the beauty of childbirth it is about sales and creating a new worthy event rather than creating art.
I think that Murdoch's comment is interesting, she doesn't look like she is in pain at all, she seems rather nonchalant about it, as if she is more involved with the bear rug than her baby.
I wouldn’t want to have it in my home, but there is no accounting for taste.
