    A Paris Sculpture to Die For by Natalie Finn
    Paris Hilton's ready to spill her guts in the name of art.
    New York artist Daniel Edwards, previously responsible for last year's
    sculpture of a very pregnant Britney Spears down on all fours,
    recently polished off a piece entitled Paris Hilton Autopsy, which will be the centerpiece of "Campaign to Rescue Women of Youth," a public service announcement about the perils of drunk driving.

    The life-sized sculpture depicts a supposedly dead Hilton,
    in the nude except for a jeweled tiara perched on her head,
    with Tinkerbell (in matching tiara) lying across the heiress' shoulder.
    A cell phone is clutched in Hilton's hand.

    To help ram the message home, the Hilton sculpture has
    an open abdominal cavity and its innards are removable,
    as if the Simple Life star were really being splayed out for an autopsy.

    All of the internal organs have been rendered to scale and visitors
    to the exhibition will be encouraged to don a pair of gloves and
    pick through the plaster-and-clay remains.

    The decidedly morbid display, which will have its unveiling May 11
    at Capla Kesting Fine Art in Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood,
    is designed to "counter the disturbingly glamorized trend of Hollywood's
    girls-gone-wild," gallery director David Kesting said.

    Hilton, who pleaded no contest to alcohol-related reckless driving in January stemming from her September arrest on suspicion of driving under
    the influence, participated in a PSA as part of her sentence, which
    included three years' probation and 40 hours of community service.

    "I think Daniel is really trying to embrace Paris' stance against youth drunk
    driving and the dangers that alcohol presents to young women in our
    society right now," Kesting told E! Online.

    The tiara is a reference to other high-profile beauties whose lives either
    came to an end or were compromised by drinking, including Princess Diana,
    whose driver was drunk when she was killed in a fatal car crash in Paris,
    and former Miss USA Tara Conner, who almost lost her crown due to her
    hard-partying ways and ended up in rehab.

    Hilton's rep couldn’t be reached for comment, so there's no word yet on
    what she thinks about the finished product.

    Kesting couldn't say for sure whether Hilton knew about Edwards'
    latest commission, but he said that he "wouldn't be surprised if she was"
    involved.

    "I think that Daniel's really gone out of his way to help inform the
    public about how she really feels about" the DUI issue, Kesting said.

    And Edwards is no slouch when it comes to producing works of art
    that delve beneath the surface of the latest hot-button issues.

    In addition to the anatomically correct Monument to Pro-Life:
    The Birth of Sean Preston, featuring Spears giving birth to her
    firstborn on a bearskin rug, he also gave us Suri's Bronzed Baby Poop,
    in honor of what presumably came out after Suri Cruise's first solid meal.

    Just the fact that Paris "might be involved" pisses me off. That defeats the whole purpose of it. I see this as a statement against white trash like Paris and their negetive influence on children, Even though parents SHOULD be doing their job by telling their kids that she is in fact a piece of human garbage, that's not enough. The sad fact is, many people see nothing wrong with her and see her as just a piece of entertainment, disconnecting her exploits from their real life effect on society.
    As an art student, I would have preffered it if Paris was so unbelieveably pissed about it. Then it would only bring further inpact on people, making them think about it harder and decide who they side with. The walking, pardon the phrase, cum-bucket Paris, or the artist who is trying to save us from the dregs of society and media.
