Artist Protests 'Iraq War Apathy' with Prince Harry Statue - Sculptor Daniel Edwards to Unveil Latest Political Spectacle in London

| From

NEW YORK and LONDON, England - Oct. 3 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Prince Harry is the symbolic hero of a monument encouraging empathy for the Iraq War in the latest work by controversial New York sculptor, Daniel Edwards. The statue featuring Prince Harry will be unveiled at London's Trafalgar Hotel October 11th during the Bridge Art Fair, courtesy of Capla Kesting Fine Art of Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Caption: Iraq War MemorialEdwards, known for his previous works which include a nude Britney Spears giving birth on a bearskin rug, an interactive autopsy of Paris Hilton with removable organs, and a cleavage revealing Hillary Clinton as President elect of the 2008 election, suggests "There seems to be an increasing apathy in regard to the war in Iraq. Maybe this monument can inspire more people to speak up, and pay closer attention to the war."

"Prince Harry was willing to join the war effort and, in the process, encouraged others to become more involved," says David Kesting of Capla Kesting Fine Art. "This tribute recognizes Prince Harry's contributions."

The gallery has also provided the website PrinceHarryMemorial.com to give people a forum for expressing their thoughts concerning the war. "We would like to see people fight the growing apathy," says Capla Kesting's John Leo.

(c) Send2PressThe Iraq War Memorial, which features Prince Harry laid out before the Union Jack with a bouquet of red roses filling his helmet, draws inspiration from Harry's willingness to sacrifice for his country, and the sympathy for his disappointment of an unfulfilled patriotic aspiration.

PROFESSIONAL PREVIEW for the event is held at the Trafalgar Hotel, room 118, October 11th from 1 p.m. - 4 p.m., with a reception for the public from 5 p.m. - 10 p.m.. For information, contact David Kesting at 917-650-3760 or John Leo at 917-292-8865 or visit www.BridgeArtFair.com.
