Artist Protests 'Iraq War Apathy' With Prince Harry Statue - Sculptor Daniel Edwards to Unveil Latest Political Spectacle in London



    NEW YORK and LONDON, Oct. 4 /CNW/ -- Prince Harry is the symbolic hero of
a monument encouraging empathy for the Iraq War in the latest work by
controversial New York sculptor, Daniel Edwards.  The statue featuring Prince
Harry will be unveiled at London's Trafalgar Hotel October 11th during the
Bridge Art Fair, courtesy of Capla Kesting Fine Art of Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

    Edwards, known for his previous works which include a nude Britney Spears
giving birth on a bearskin rug, an interactive autopsy of Paris Hilton with
removable organs, and a cleavage revealing Hillary Clinton as President elect
of the 2008 election, suggests "There seems to be an increasing apathy in
regard to the war in Iraq. Maybe this monument can inspire more people to
speak up, and pay closer attention to the war."
    "Prince Harry was willing to join the war effort and, in the process,
encouraged others to become more involved," says David Kesting of Capla
Kesting Fine Art. "This tribute recognizes Prince Harry's contributions."
    The gallery has also provided the website
http://www.PrinceHarryMemorial.com to give people a forum for expressing their
thoughts concerning the war. "We would like to see people fight the growing
apathy," says Capla Kesting's John Leo.
    The Iraq War Memorial, which features Prince Harry laid out before the
Union Jack with a bouquet of red roses filling his helmet, draws inspiration
from Harry's willingness to sacrifice for his country, and the sympathy for
his disappointment of an unfulfilled patriotic aspiration.
    PROFESSIONAL PREVIEW for the event is held at the Trafalgar Hotel, room
118, October 11th from 1pm-4pm, with a reception for the public from 5pm-10pm.
