I wonder if people sometimes forget that she elected to have a c-section because she was afraid of labor pains. It would be more lifelike if it was a statue of her laying on an operating table.

What. A. Crock. Yes, I agree w/pp. He could certainly have chosen a better example of a woman giving birth! She would NEVER be someone I'd choose to depict childbirth!

I agree, thats whats so interesting that this artist decided to depict her. And in the statue, she looks so powerful- I mean whats more powerful than having a baby on a bear rug? Pretty interesting... I wonder what Britney thinks...

I don't care who it is, I love the statue. It doesn't look like Britney to me at all. I love the depiction of women as sexual, birthing beings.

I know my c/s didn't look anything like that. The closest it came is when they were holding my legs over my head so the spinal would spread. It is an interesting statue though... I wonder if smaller reproductions will be sold.

I would love it if it wasn't supposed to be Britney.

Shouldn't she be posed seductively on her back with a team of surgeons surrounding her?

Your life doesnât change by the man whos elected. If your loved by someone you can't be rejected... decide what to be and go be it! If your a caged bird brake in and demand that somebody free it.

Why not pam anderson or Cindy Crawford, you know women who had natural births. Not someone who did a c-sec for no good reason.

Yeah that to all of the above!

I think it's an amazing piece of art, but I don't know why he made it be Brittany. Luckly, it doesn't really look much like her, so we can imagine the statue is just some beautiful, strong, birthing woman.
