BROOKLYN, NY (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- A nude Britney Spears on a bearskin rug while giving birth to her firstborn marks a 'first' for Pro-Life. Pop-star Britney Spears is the "ideal" model for Pro-Life and the subject of a dedication at Capla Kesting Fine Art in Brooklyn's Williamsburg gallery district, in what is proclaimed the first Pro-Life monument to birth, in April.

Dedication of the life-sized statue celebrates the recent birth of Spears' baby boy, Sean, and applauds her decision of placing family before career. "A superstar at Britney's young age having a child is rare in today's celebrity culture. This dedication honors Britney for the rarity of her choice and bravery of her decision," said gallery co-director, Lincoln Capla. The dedication includes materials provided by Manhattan Right To Life Committee.

"Monument to Pro-Life: The Birth of Sean Preston," believed Pro-Life's first monument to the 'act of giving birth,' is purportedly an idealized depiction of Britney in delivery. Natural aspects of Spears' pregnancy, like lactiferous breasts and protruding naval, compliment a posterior view that depicts widened hips for birthing and reveals the crowning of baby Sean's head.

The monument also acknowledges the pop-diva's pin-up past by showing Spears seductively posed on all fours atop a bearskin rug with back arched, pelvis thrust upward, as she clutches the bear's ears with 'water-retentive' hands.

"Britney provides inspiration for those struggling with the 'right choice'," said artist Daniel Edwards, recipient of a 2005 Bartlebooth award from London's The Art Newspaper. "She was number one with Google last year, with good reason --- people are inspired by the beauty of a pregnant woman," said Edwards.

Capla Kesting denies the statue was developed from a rumored bootleg Britney Spears birth video. The artist admits to using references that include the wax figure of a pole-dancing Britney at Las Vegas' Madame Tussauds and 'Britney wigs' characterizing various hairstyles of the pop-princess from a Los Angeles hairstylist. And according to gallery co-director, David Kesting, the artist studied a bearskin rug from Canada "to convey the commemoration of the traditional bearskin rug baby picture."

An appropriate location for permanent installation of "Monument to Pro-Life" by Mother's Day is being sought by the gallery.

Gallery hours are 1:00 - 6:00 pm Thursday thru Sunday, or by appointment. The gallery can be reached at http://www.caplakesting.com or by phone at 646-932-5687.

How in the hell is a statue of a naked Britney Spears in a compromising position "pro-life"???

I am as pro-life as you can get. I must have missed the memo.

Frankly this statue is an abortion I am in FAVOR of flushing.

Ick.

Ladies tend to retain water making them a bit puffy at times, especially when they are preggers.

That's probably the position she was in when she got knocked up in the first place!
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 10:54:21 AM EDT
That position is what got her pregnant... damn artists just don't get it.

I would like to formally change my stance on this subject matter - after reading the article AFTER I saw the picture, it appears the only interesting side of the statue (not shown) is currently occupied by her kid's head.


Sorry, but I don't do inanimate objects that in labor

The live show is creepy and disgusting. I have no idea why someone would want to make a statue of a kid's head crowning.

I agree, it'd be much better sans crowning....I wonder though, is the baby barely crowning, partially out, waving hello, or smiling and giving the viewer a peace sign?

Generally the term "crowning" refers to the very top of the baby's head being....umm..........visible.

But as creepy as the rest of the statue is, it wouldn't suprise me to hear that the kid was half out wearing a gold chain saying "Is you my daddy??"

lol...crowning heads are wierd. My wife and I watched a NOVA show on PBS the other week and they showed the vaginal birth....the graphic part caught us by suprise as we figured it'd be edited out.....

so as soon as they showed the baby slide out both of us simultaneously went ..."UUUUHhhhhh OHhh NO they didn't! OH ...wtf IS that....ohman that's omg....no f'n way that ain't right!"

I will say though, for the record, that vaginas are amazing.

And that is why the 'Discovery Health' channel is deleted from my channel listings.

I was flipping channels one day and caught a doc holding up an ummm..... freshly born baby.

Even though it was only for a second it was one second too long.
