Holy Hotness Immortalized Again

Some of you may twitch at the name “Daniel Edwards”. He’s an artist/sculptor of the “celebrity shock” variety. He seems to use celebrity images exclusively to create some kind of pseudo-political-cultural message. Like his “Monument to Pro-Life” which featured a pregnant Britney Spears on her knees on a bearskin rug, giving birth. Or the “Oprah Sarcophagus”, which Edwards claimed he made to raise awareness about baby boomers’ health care needs. Daniel has done many more, which you can see here and here.

His latest work features none other than Angelina Jolie. According to the reports, the sculture was inspired by last year’s W Magazine cover, with Brad Pitt photographing Angelina Jolie breastfeeding one of their newborn twins. The sculpture features a nude Angelina, simultaneously breastfeeding two babies against each breast. The sculpture will debut in Norman, Oklahoma in the second week of September, all as part of World Breastfeeding Week.
