Birthing Britney Artist Cuts Into Paris Hilton
Scultpure Shows Heiress Dead, Nude and Dissectable

(May 1) -- You'd think it would be hard for New York artist Daniel Edwards to top the buzz he caused by creating a sculpture of Britney Spears giving birth on all fours, but his new statue could become his most famous.

Edwards' latest work , titled "Paris Hilton Autopsy," is just that -- the heiress, supposedly dead and laid out on a table nude, except for a tiara, her dog Tinkerbell and cell phone. The statue of Hilton then has an open abdominal cavity with removable innards, with all of the internal organs made to scale. Exhibit patrons will be encouraged to wear gloves and pick through the remains.

The controversial sculpture is the centerpiece of "Campaign to Rescue Women of Youth," a public service announcement about the hazards of drunk driving. Hilton was arrested in 2006 for driving under the influence, and has a May 4 court date to determine her punishment. The gallery director of Capla Kesting Fine Art, the Brooklyn studio where the Hilton piece will be displayed, says the sculpture is made to "counter the disturbingly glamorized trend of Hollywood's girls-gone-wild."

Hilton has yet to comment on the sculpture.

Many may remember Edwards from his "Monument to Pro-Life: The Birth of Sean Preston," a statue featuring Britney Spears giving birth to her first child with Kevin Federline on a bearskin rug. He then followed that piece with "Suri's Bronzed Baby Poop."
