Angelina Jolie sculpture

An artist named Daniel Edwards has unveiled a life-sized sculpture of Angelina Jolie. The sculpture shows the Hollywood starlet breastfeeding twins and has been created to display at the upcoming World Breastfeeding Week.
Edwards has said he intends for the sculpture to encourage more women to breastfeed publicly. The artwork is said to have been inspired by a photograph of Angelina Jolie taken by husband Brad Pitt and featured on the cover of W Magazine. The photograph showed her breastfeeding one of her twins.
This is definitely one of the oddest sculptures I’ve ever seen (and I’ve seen a good few sculptures all over the world), and I certainly don’t think it would encourage me to breastfeed…
What do you think? Arty or just plain creepy – and where should the artistic line be drawn?
