Artist Creates Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez Nude Statue

Sculptor Daniel Edwards has created a bronze statue of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez (photosSelena Gomez photos) nude -- with the two literally joined at the hip.

The words 'Justin & Selena Forever' stand at the base of the bronze likeness.

And their modesty is only covered by a maple leaf, because Justin Bieber is from Canada, and a Lone Star, because Selena Gomez is from Texas.

Edwards is known for his controversial and almost always over-the-top artwork such as Britney Spears (photosBritney Spears photos) giving birth on her hands and knees and Suri Cruise's poop.

The sculptor tells the 'Dallas Observer', the statue represents "the patterns of young celebrities being turned into sex objects."

"Bieber's hooked up with Selena Gomez, who is a couple years older, and they're photographing him like crazy at the beach, and they're almost wearing nothing. So it's already started to happen," he explains.

"So I just kind of looked at it a little more carefully. As far as the nudity, it's just, as an artist, that's standard. It's conventional for any figurative artist. You're trained to work with the nude figure, so truthfully, me and all the other guys who are trained like me don't even think about that."

"But we know that it's pretty easy provocation for everybody else."

The sculpture also includes a Canada goose on top of -- you could say mounting -- an armadillo near its base.

"It's a way to be suggestive without crossing lines with an underage person," says Edwards. "I was having fun with that."
