Artist Daniel Edwards has unveiled this life-size, nude portrait of pop star Justin Bieber and his girlfriend, Selena Gomez. It depicts the teenagers almost entirely nude (we’ve seen Justin in his underwear), with a Canadian maple leaf and a Texas lone star covering their most intimate parts.
The piece, titled Justin and Selena as One, features them conjoined at the torso. The final portrait will be revealed at Dallas’s New Fine Arts at an as yet unannounced date.
Sculptor Daniel Edwards is infamous for sculpting such sculptures as Britney Spears giving birth, Suri‘s poop, Angelina Jolie nursing, Paris Hilton dead, and an Angelina and Brad Pitt piece called Brangelina As One.
In a press release, Edwards’ spokesperson explains the artist wanted to depict Bieber and Gomez as Adam and Eve. Gomez is leading Bieber to Eden as a Canadian goose leads the way. He added it also depicts “harmony” between Canada and the United States. “Justin and Selena joined together symbolizes the great harmony between neighboring countries Canada and the United States,” said spokesman Cory Allen in the press release. “Countries like North Korea and South Korea could learn from our example. It would be nice to exhibit this portrait in the areas of the world where tensions are high between countries that share borders.”
