What the hell???


A New York gallery is featuring a bizarre sculpture of Hollywood celebutante and socialite Paris Hilton in a distinctly unglamorous pose - pregnant on an autopsy slab with one leg up in stirrups.

The sculpture, which goes on public display on Friday, was dreamed up by artist Daniel Edwards, whose previous works have included a nude, life-sized sculpture of pop princess Britney Spears on all fours giving birth.

The Hilton sculpture, which is designed to warn of the dangers of drink driving, comes complete with interactive opened abdominal cavity. The gallery is encouraging art lovers to get their hands on the removable organs.

Hilton was arrested in September last year for drink driving and was sentenced to a jail term last week for driving on a suspended licence.

"An interactive Public Service Announcement featuring the graphic display of a tiara-wearing, autopsied Paris Hilton with removable innards is designed to warn teenagers of the hazards of underage drinking," the gallery said.

"Paris's internals, which include her small intestines, uterus and foetuses, are removable to assist teens with an empathetic view of drunk driving tragedy from the coroner's perspective," gallery director David Kesting said.

The sculpture also features Hilton's Chihuahua Tinkerbell, also wearing a tiara, rampant and begging for attention.

"The tableau ... reminds potential prom queens no one is impervious to the pitfalls of drinking," the gallery, Capla Kesting Fine Art, said.

The sculpture is for sale, although the asking price was not disclosed.

The gallery has also invited students to compose an obituary for the socialite, based on the artwork.

That is just plain weird. Creepy. Gross.

She's supposed to be pregnant? In that first one it looks like her back is arched, but she sure doesn't look anything like I did when I was pregnant!

She must be like 5 weeks along.

Oh, and I've seen a TON of dead bodies hold that pose too.

Definitely creepy gross.

I do drug and alcohol prevention work with kids. Perhaps the artist can take the work on the road and we'll set it up in the local high school gym. Yeah, that's it.....

This is just glorifying everything Paris. She's already made herself just a physical object, and this attempt to take it to an "extreme" is kind of weak. So the message is: "you haven't seen her BOWELS yet!"

And I was going to try cracking a joke about her dog interfering with her sexy pose... Do you think a dead person will look so alluring?

Hello! I followed you over here from Swishy and I've been chuckling at your posts. Thanks for the laughs!

That sculpture is one of the most disturbing things I've ever seen. Right up there with that Britney Spears monstrosity. What are these people thinking?? And what museum in NYC is this so I'm sure not to go there and get an accidental peak?

It's supposed to make people think twice about drinking and driving?

I have a lot of weird conceptions in my glass, but don't think I could have come up with that in about a million years.
