Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ baby daughter Suri is so famous that a bronze sculpture titled ‘Suri's Bronzed Baby Poop’ has gone on display Capla Kesting Fine Art gallery – even though the world hasn’t yet got a glimpse of what the tiny tot looks like.
As for the artist, well Daniel Edwards, the man behind ‘Monument to Pro-Life: The Birth of Sean Preston’ that depicted a very pregnant and very nude Britney Spears giving birth on a bearskin rug, is also responsible for this idea, after being inspired by the successful children's book ‘Everybody Poops’.
In a statement, the Capla Kesting Fine Art, located in Brooklyn's Williamsburg gallery district, said that the idea was partially a ‘statement’ on modern media, and also the ‘absurdity’ of coverage TomKat’s baby was getting.
"It's partially a statement on modern media that 'celebrity poop' has more entertainment value than health, famine or other critical issues facing society and governments today. and also the absurdity of the media coverage on Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' new baby, Suri Cruise, which has reached stellar proportions, eclipsing far more notable events with more substance," E!Online quoted the gallery, as saying.
"Babies mostly breastfeed for the first four months, so a baby's first meal of solid food may be a baby's first meal at the dinner table. A bronzed cast of baby's first poop can be a meaningful memento for the family," said David Kesting, the director of Capla Kesting Fine Art.
The sculpture will be at the gallery at least through September, before going up for auction on eBay, with proceeds going to the March of Dimes foundation.
