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, ... . [snip]
Not that I would do it myself, apparently attracting publicity is the name of the game, isn't it?

The sculpture has not yet been shown to the public. There is still one month to go. And already there are more than 300 news website around the world reporting on this sculpture.

To Britney, this extra publicity is perhaps insignificant. But because of this sculpture, so many more people all over the world will have heard of the sculptor Daniel Edwards, the art gallery Capla Kesting and the organization Pro-Life.
