Oops, they did it again!

In my Churchill Statue post from a couple of weeks ago I asked for suggestions of what other unusual statues we might see... the last thing I expected was to find this sculpture so soon afterwards. With thanks to Clairwil for drawing my attention thither.

Cheers m'dears!

who the hell gives birth doggy style?

this is more likely the "lubrication ceremony" before labor.

I am confused as to the interpretaton of this piece.....

First, I am not convinced it is Ms Spears who is being modelled.

Second, where is the baby?

My own suggestion is that an anonymous pregant woman with an oversized pelvis slipped whilst walking across the flattened carcass of a bear and is shown in the act of raising herself up from the ground.

In view of this re-interpretation, I would perhaps be inclined to rename the piece. Why not, for example, call it 'Oops, I tripped up again'

Ah yes the doggy style birthing position worries me. I'd feel a lot better if the artist had also sculpted a midwife waiting to catch at the back.

AB, if she's in that position you can't help but look down.....

Monstee, right with yeeewwww there...

Sarah, lubrication ceremony? Double yeeewww!

Doc McC, apparently you can actually see the pate of the almost-born childs head emerging, should you view the statue from the correct angle. That prompts 2 polar opposite thoughts... 1) the miracle of childbirth, aaahhhh! 2) triple Yeeewwwww!!

Clair, and how about including the look of pain and e few beads of sweat instead of promoting the myth that superstars have miraculously easy births.

I'm not a prude... it's not the lube that did it but the idea of lube on Britney! Vile repulsive creature that she is.....

I looked at this and thought of saying about having a wolf by the ears, you can't hold on and you can't let go. Seems appropriate to the pro-life debate.
