A "bust" of Hillary unveiled at the Museum of Sex
(No, I didn't make this up)



Hillary Clinton on display at NY's Museum of Sex
Wed Aug 9, 2006 04:45 PM ET

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A "Presidential Bust" of U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton was unveiled on Wednesday at New York's Museum of Sex, where sculptor Daniel Edwards hopes it will spark discussion about sex, politics and celebrity.

Edwards, the artist who also created a life-size nude of Britney Spears giving birth on a bear-skin rug, said he wanted to capture Clinton's age and femininity in the sculpture.

Clinton's office had no immediate comment.

Edwards said his work features soft "presidential smile" and wrinkles framing her eyes. A floral pattern runs across her breasts, part of Edwards' effort to present Clinton "as a woman -- not a covered up person, but as a woman."

"I didn't want to give her a face lift or change her age," he said of his work.

"The key was to reveal her chest a little bit. She usually covers herself up, but I don't think that's necessary."

1. That's unusual.
The artist gave her more wrinkles than what she actually have.

3. Age / femininity Juxtaposition
Multiple winkles, bigger breasts than I believe she deserves. Edwards is an artist with an eye for adding his own interpretation with conflicting results.

5. i agree with you there

He didn't give her face an age change but those breasts would be envied by most 25 year olds :-) (well, admired by the men anyway...which just proves part of your point).

6. That's about as obscene as the Britney Spears sculpture.

10. If Hillary knew this was the same artist who did
the Britney Spears birth sculpture, she's probably satisfied with this piece thinking it could have been lots worse.

Myself, I'll move right along. Gotta be better pieces in the Museum of Sex afterall.
