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

Yes, my first reaction was to the surfaces. Ugly, lacking any interest in the stone, any sense of a maker. The whole thing is itself over-designed too. An idea in stone, no more.

Old-fashioned? Well, most great sculptors since the Renaissance have chosen their medium carefully, and, if stone, which particular type to work in and exploit. This piece need not be in stone at all, it could be in resin, and resin may even be more appropriate, given the lack of interest shown in the material.

As for 'monument' and 'pro-life' - assertions.
