Hillary Clinton's bust!

Daniel Edwards - The Presidential Bust of Hillary Rodham Clinton: The First Woman President of the United States of America (2006)Remember Britney Spears on all fours, starkers? No? Come on! Now it's Hillary Clinton's turn to receive the Daniel Edwards' treatment. What? Hillary Clinton on all fours, starkers? Naw. She's too old and wrinkly to be a sex goddess. Well-groomed, mind you, in a posh-aunty-next-door sort of way. It's a bust. Edwards' title is, as usual, designed to stir controversy: The Presidential Bust of Hillary Rodham Clinton: The First Woman President of the United States of America. If this doesn't scotch Hillary's chances of becoming the Big Cheese, nothing will. Her bust is to be unveiled at the Museum of Sex, New York, on 9 August, providing the Mormons don't throw a wobbler over it. Don't all rush at once.

This Daniel Edwards is the next Damien Hirst me thinks. Controversy at its rawest?

p.s that's a fairly ugly sculpture aesthetically speaking.

You're spot on. Edwards is into self-publicity in a big way, just like our Damien. He gives his works titles that are bound to stir a furore. Last time it was the pro-life/anti-life lobbies, now it's the feminists and politicians. Did you read the ArtDaily blurb? Bit I loved was that nonsense about being intimidated by her boobs! What's intimidating about a pair of wrinkly old mammary glands? People do have some weird fantasies.

I like it!
Ignoring the hype, the title and the boobs, it would be a fine piece of sculpting, a proper "bust".

You don't feel even a teensie-weensie bit intimidated by Hillary's boobs?
Seriously, it is a fair likeness. Ditto for Britney Spears. If only he could find something better to do with his talent. What about Claudia Shiffer riding a shark bareback?
