Bronzed Suri Cruise's Poo Up on Ebay!

  1. Can it get any weirder?

    Tomkitten's 'first poop' goes on display

    Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have yet to show their baby daughter off in public, but eager fans have been given an unusual preview overnight, with the chance to see a bronze cast depicting her first solid stool.
    The scatological sculpture is purportedly cast from 19-week old Suri's first bowel movement and will be shown at the Capla Kesting gallery in Brooklyn, New York, before being auctioned off for charity.
    The artist behind the work, Daniel Edwards, previously courted controversy with a life-size nude sculpture of pop star Britney Spears giving birth on a bearskin rug. That work was shown at the same gallery in April.

    "A bronzed cast of a baby's first poop can be a meaningful memento for the family," gallery director David Kesting said, adding that he hoped the work would attract bids of up to $US50,000 ($65,000).

    The sculpture, which sits on a wooden mounting with a glass casing, is to be sold on eBay next month with proceeds from the sale going to infant health charity March Of Dimes.

    As of Wednesday it had attracted a top bid of $US41 ($54).

    eBay: SURI CRUISE’S BRONZED BABY POOP (item 200021983816 end time Sep-07-06 12:32:44 PDT)

    Cruise and Holmes announced Suri's birth in April. The entertainment press, which dubbed the pair "TomKat," has shown a seemingly insatiable appetite for news of the pair and their "TomKitten."
    A spokeman for the couple was not immediately available Wednesday to comment on the sculpture.

  8. Here is another article with comments from the artist.

    Now, a bronze piece of Suri’s poop! :

    ...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.
  9. that is.... disgusting.

  10. I'm sorry but.. Rofl! What the hell?? Honestly just.. what the hell... :wtf: That made me want to vomit..

  13. uh...what?!?!?
  14. Ok that's just gross...and if the rumors are correct and there is no baby suri.....exactly who's poop is that? :throwup:
  15. In the Auction in questions..

    Q:Is this Suri's actual poop which has been fully encased in bronze? Or is it an artist's sculpted impression of her first poop?Aug-30-06[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]A:Unfortunately, organic material burns in the heat required to cast bronze. Therefore, Daniel Edwards rendered her first solid defecation as close to the artistic eye as possible.

    Hahahahahahahaha.. unbeliveable!!
