Too many angles we could go with here, so we’ll let the press release speak for itself:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — New York, NY — July, 26 2006 — A presidential bust of Hillary Clinton is set to be unveiled at the Museum of Sex on August 9, 2006 at 10 am. Accentuating her sexual power and bolstered by the presidential seal, The Presidential Bust of Hillary Rodham Clinton: The First Woman President of the United States of America will be officially open for public viewing on August 9 for a limited six week run.
Artist Daniel Edwards describes this new sculpture as capturing Clinton “with her head held high, a youthful spirit and a face matured by wisdom. Presented in a low cut gown, her cleavage is on display prominently portraying sexual power which some people still consider too threatening.”
Edwards’ inspiration for the piece was derived from actress Sharon Stone‘s controversial quote earlier in the year about challenges that would most likely be encountered should the Junior Senator from New York run on the ’08 ticket. “I think Hillary Clinton is fantastic,” Stone said. “But I think it is too soon for her to run. This may sound odd but a woman should be past her sexuality when she runs. Hillary still has sexual power and I don’t think people will accept that. It’s too threatening.”
Edwards, of course, is the controversial artist who brought us the Britney Spears‘ birthing statue we, unfortunately, may never be able to forget.
Not sure what’s more disturbing here: The sculpture itself, or that someone is producing art inspired by Sharon Stone quotes.
