Michelle Obama receives a Bust

Posted on September 23rd, 2008 by HisHighness in IUC:Fashion, IUC:Politics

Michelle Obama sculpted bare breasts and all
American artist Daniel Edwards (no relation to that wife cheating, Hugh Hefner wannabe John) has sculpted the likes of Fidel Castro and Britney Spears giving birth. Now, he turns his clay on First Lady hopeful Michelle Obama, exposed breasts and all. Do you like it? Please let IUC know. Post your thoughts.

    I think this is a good case of mixed metaphors. Michelle Obama, like her spouse is desperately seeking validation by changing faces and colors like Al Jolson. The proof is in the breasts, which are implants that resemble the bosom of Queen Matamba of Angola. To be an African Queen, one must be proud of your heritage-not a self-loathing African wanna -be Christian, who’s traded in tribal rites for a ride on The African Queen with Bogart, flat-chested with a hat and veil covering her black face while she pretends to have the affected cadence and regal airs of Katherine The Great Hepburn. It’s like an optical illusion, the more you look, the more you see and I see a mature Sally Hemmings, slave slut of Jefferson, branded by the icon of the country whose freedom flag he helped wave. There’s an air of Nefertiti in the bust or titi as well. Why not add a wig for the orthodox contingent and, of course, a berka, to kiss the ass of Islam while you’re at it, Michelle Osama.

    It’s finally happened- Michelle Obama has been molded into a likeness of Nefertiti. It was bound to happen. Daniel Edwards, who sculpted the statue, is famous for rendering likenesses of Britney Spears, Suri Cruise’s first shidoobee, and Paris Hilton’s autopsy. As one of his more flattering pieces, Edwards’ bust shows the potential first lady in one of the most attractive lights he has ever portrayed a celebrity. Imagine going from a b-cup to a double D overnight…

    It looks far more like a prop for a movie called “The Bride of Black Frankenstein” than Michelle Obama to me. Edwards was definitely generous to Michelle when it came to the “bust” department. If those were her real assets I’m pretty sure you’d see a lot of polls going up across the country. Or should I say poles.

    At least the Obamas aren’t getting the favorite treatment from the art world. I was fairly impressed with Madam Tussauds’ wax sculpture of Cindy McCain that they wheeled out on stage for the Republican National Convention. That is until it talked and I realized it actually was Cindy McCain. Though she may have had more sculpting done over the years than an actual wax figurine.

    I can hardly tell it’s Michelle Obama. The hair looks like Marge Simpson, the breasts look like Pam Anderson and the face…hardly descript to make it look like Michelle. The flag on the chest – maybe the closest thing to what is really Michelle.

    I’m speechless. No mere words can describe how I feel about Michelle’s bust. But I think she’ll make a marvelous First Lady. And I agree with Brady’s comment about Cindy “I need to stay close to my husband at all times just in case he falls or makes a complete idiot out of himself” McCain. The woman already is a wax sculpture–and a bad one at that.

    Welcome to a new America! The mold has been broken and the American people seem to be speaking loud and clear. Daniel Edwards has put our thoughts, and hopes into tangible form, with his fresh depiction of an old principle: patriotism. Michelle Obama, like her husband, represents our great country, one made up of a diverse range of cultural and ethnic backgrounds that have come together to celebrate freedom and justice for all. As a sidebar, I think that whoever decided Tyra Banks should portray Michelle Obama in Harper’s Bazaar should be forced to eat Star Jones’ surgical waste. That’s like casting Pauly Shore as Abe Lincoln.

    What exactly has Michelle said about this? It looks as if she’s spent the night doing meth and drinking. Maybe the combination caused her to I don’t know…get the tattoo of a flag on her chest. Does this reveal that Michelle will in fact replace the Bush Daughters as DC’s number one party girl.

    It doesn’t even really look like Michelle. Could you see her with an Afro with a pick in her head? I don’t think so!

    What’s interesting is that this particular statue–even though she ain’t no First Lady yet–is that Edwards, the “artist,” depicted Obama nude from the waist up. Why is that? Yeah, OK, it’s of a piece with his other pieces: the one of Britney Spears givng birth on a bearskin rug, the one of a dead Paris Hilton lying spread-eagle naked, a dead Prince Harry, a naked Oprah. He says they’re all some sort of commentary about people’s fascination with sex. I say it’s his own fascination with grabbing attention to himself–more so than to his art or to whatever commentary he thinks he’s making with his art–than it is to the effects of celebrity, or, in this case, any sort of homage to Obama. (After all, this is a guy who claimed to have bronzed the bowel movement of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ child, and then sold replicas of it on eBay.) As most of the above comments point out, Edwards’ lame nods to Nefertiti only heap that much more approbation on Obama. And it doesn’t appear that she had anything at all to do with Edwards or his bust.

    I think it’s yet another brilliant move by the Obama campaign.
    Everyone has been talking about how bonerrific Pallin is, and clearly the Obamas are attempting to counter boner-gate by appealing to the libidinous sensibilites of the American male population, a large segment of which experienced their first pup tents while reading National Geographic and viewing the unfettered African racks contained within.

    Well, I’m not American and I’m not a lover of government, politics, or anything else domineering over the rights of the people. Thus, as a mere BEing, and appreciator of the arts, I think this artistic rendition is one of complete BEauty!
    It exemplifies the BEauty of women, portraying a strong BEing, shoulders back, serene face, with the added touch of a PEACE sculpted beautifully by the bird sitting atop her fantabulous hair. I could do without the amercian flag, but that is who she is, thus appropriate to the BEing portrayed, not to mention what appears to me to be the eye of osiris depicting not only the future but the past as well.
    As an artistic piece, it is beautifully sculpted, with attention to detail, lines of precision and obvious professionalism and personally I think it’s to be commended. Of course, again, I’m not American and have no care for politics or government and thus I suppose any subliminal or not so subliminal messages of opinion are simply lost on me :O)

    In response to this last comment. I AM an American and a BEing and I totally agree that this is just absolutely beautiful. It doesn’t matter what the actual size of Michelle’s breasts are… that’s what art is all about… expression, freedom. Like Van Gogh’s “starry nights,” that’s not exactly how everything looks, but that’s how the artist interprets what he or she sees. Art is what makes life livable, doable, expressing all emotions and intellect. I think if more people could see their actual lives as “art,” as in the actual “art of living,” the world would be a far better place.

    I really like what you had to say here! It\’s about time! Would you mind if I placed a link back from my blog?

    All I can say is O-mama! Being a heterosexual female, I was in no way aroused by the photo but rather astonished to imagine that those are what newly appointed first lady, Michelle Obama hides under her dress suits and other articles of formal-wear.

    Although I don’t know that this is a correct way to portray the new first lady, I believe in artistic expression. I think it is a beautiful piece of work. With a notable American flag carved on the right side of her chest and a bird resembling a dove in her hair, I would like to think of this as a metaphorical approach to patriotism and peace.

    I have also been an Obama fan since the start, and although I am Canadian, I still am glad to see that see that he won the election.

    I am not clear if I totally understand the full thought pattern behind this.

    she is a knockout im not sure this is appropriate for such a beautiful classy lady.

    As a piece of art, I think it is beautiful. As a political statement I think it’s a warning.
