Unusual sculpture honors the national trend for Gen X parents to bronze their baby’s ‘first poop’

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Aug. 29 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Today, the Capla Kesting Fine Art gallery in New York announced the latest work by noted sculptor Daniel Edwards, famous for his celebrity-inspired themes, which depicts an interpretive “bronze casting of Suri Cruise’s first poop.” The natural and inoffensive sculpture in bronze will be on display at the gallery in September and auctioned on eBay for the March of Dimes charity.

(c) Daniel EdwardsEdwards’ internationally lauded (sometimes lambasted) work is rarely for sale or auction and is a unique opportunity for those appreciating both satire, social commentary and genuine fine art to enjoy a chuckle and help a worthwhile charity.

The Sculpture is partially inspired by the best-selling picture book “Everybody Poops” by author Taro Gomi, 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.

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.

A reception and presentation of the proceeds raised by Capla Kesting Fine Art for March Of Dimes will be held September 8th from 6:00 to 9:00 at 121 Roebling St., Brooklyn. The gallery can be reached at www.caplakesting.com or by phone at 917-650-3760.
