2006_03_britbrit.jpgIf you've ever wanted to see Britney Spears naked, now's your chance (at least until a tape of her having sex comes out) and all in the name of art. One minor detail, it's a sculpture and she's birthing. On the plus side, it's life size. The artwork is coming to Williamsburg for a two week show at Capla Kestin Fine Art. The piece, titled "Monument to Pro-Life: The Birth of Sean Preston," supposedly celebrates Spears' "decision of placing family before career" and "honors Britney for the rarity of her choice and bravery of her decision." Gallery organizers and pro-life activists claim that the sculpture is the first pro-life "monument to birth."

All Gothamist was wondering when we first read about this was how anatomically correct the piece was. As the sculptor didn't actually meet Brit Brit, it's probably not too accurate. The gallery's website says it has several realistic features, "lactiferous breasts and protruding naval, compliment a posterior view that depicts widened hips for birthing and reveals the crowning of baby Sean’s head." Um. Okay. We'll stick to watching loops of the birthing scene from The Miracle of Life.

The work isn't without controversy as it seems to be drawing a fare share of hate e-mail (we know about that, don't we!). Daniel Edwards, the sculptor said that his work is a "new take on pro-life." For Edwards, creating the his tribute was a family effort with his three kids pitching in. Gothamist applauds his fun family activity - a birthing Brit Brit, a bearskin rug, and thoughts of doggy-style.
