Artist Daniel Edwards unveils sculpture of nude Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez
Remember when American artist Daniel Edwards unveiled his sculpture depicting Britney Spears giving birth on a bearskin rug? He's the pop-culture-obsessed sculptor who also gave us Angelina Jolie caressing Brad Pitt and breastfeeding her twins, and Paris Hilton frolicking nude with her chihuahua. All nude, and all executed in a way that makes the collected works of Jeff Koons look tasteful.
Well, the celebrity-inspired sculptor has struck again. Today, he revealed a life-size nearly-nude of tween couple Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez.
The sculpture, which is called "Justin and Selena as One", is dipped in bronze and features a maple leaf covering Bieber's genitals and a Texas lone star over Gomez's privates, representing each of their birthplaces. The piece also depicts a Canada goose and an armadillo walking in front.
In a statement released on Tuesday (July 10), Edwards says that he hopes that the sculpture appears in Canadian embassies around the world as "a symbol of Canada's prowess in the areas of art and commerce."
"Justin and Selena as One" will make its debut at New Fine Arts, a Dallas, Texas, sex shop.
