Controversy over the New Britney Spears Sculpture
Daniel Edwards' sculpture of Britney Spears giving birth has sparked controversy in all corners, in the BBC.
A nude sculpture depicting singer Britney Spears giving birth to her son has prompted a flood of emails from both pro-choice and anti-abortionists.
Monument to Pro-Life: The Birth of Sean Preston will be unveiled at New York's Capla Kesting Art gallery in April.
Gallery co-owner David Kesting said they had received 3,000 emails, some from "pro-life" supporters who thought it was degrading to their movement.
He added that other people were "upset" the sculpture was a pro-life monument.
The life-size work, by artist Daniel Edwards, features Spears crouched on all fours on a bear-skin rug as she gives birth.
It will be displayed at the gallery alongside a display case filled with anti-abortion materials.
