    Bold sculpture of Michelle Obama with American flag across her bare chest

    Michelle Obama has been given a startling makeover by an American artist who has created a bare-chested sculpture of the 44-year-old lawyer.

    Sculpture of Michelle Obama


    The powerful clay work shows Mrs Obama in the style of an African Queen, wearing large hooped earrings and an "afro pick" comb in her Egyptian-influenced hairstyle.

    An American flag is tattooed across her naked chest and the comb is decorated with pearls, the traditional garb of a First Lady, and an American Eagle.

    The work, by controversial sculptor Daniel Edwards, is clearly a nod to both Mrs Obama's ethnic roots and her position at the heart of American culture and politics.

    As her husband, Barack Obama, battles to win the next US presidential elections, she has come under intense media spotlight, and has been likened to former First Lady Jackie Kennedy.

    However, Edwards said: "The goal is to create a look for Michelle Obama that eliminates excessive comparisons to Jackie Kennedy."

    The bust, entitled "Michelle Obama's Makeover for America" goes on display at the Leo Kesting Gallery in New York on October 1.

    A gallery spokesman said: "Look out Oprah, a new 'Lady O's' in charge. Michelle Obama inspires a fashion template change that many First Ladies of the 21st Century may follow, as we witness minorities in this country becoming the majority."

    The sculpture forms part of the Inspire America series by Edwards, which includes the Oprah Sarcophagus, and The Iraq War Memorial, featuring a work which depicts Prince Harry as if he had died in combat clutching the cameo-locket of his late mother, Princess Diana.

          Must be. She wouldn't have anything to do with an American flag. Now, had the guy made her out to be a Betsy Ross-type woman, it might resound a bit more. Of course, the colors on the flag would probably be gold, black, red and green.

          Ahh.. but think about it. We stand the chance of having a First Lady who doesn't like America. Or didn't until her husband was anointed by the Democrats.

            Like I said...I wish there was a voter-competence test administered. Some people just shouldn't be allowed to have their opinion count...

                Me too. Of course, if there was a presidential-competence test administered, we wouldn't be having any decisions about the Obamas.

                    It ain't metal, honey. She is scary, regarless of the medium used.

                      A sculpture of her wearing dark colored pajamas and a face scarf with a AK47 at port arms would actually fit her personality more accurately. She has professed her hatred of this country by her rantings that are actually documented in her college thesis that you will never see posted due to the bias media support her and her husband receive. The funny thing is the majority of her college tuition was paid for by tax payer money provided by americans. thumbs down to her. Maybe Oprah can buy the sculpture.

                        Careful there. You may have to take the competence test along with me.

                        Actually, I can see the libs coming up with a test like that. Once they ascend to power and have a "God-head" in power, they'll likely try to change the method of voting to ensure they stay in power.

                          Any chance you have access to her college thesis, and can provide a 'paste' or a link?

                            Actually, I think the last people that were disenfranchised came in Florida under the watch of the GOP. Actually, that was the last big voting corruption controversy that comes to my mind. Corruption, conflict of interest, etc. Sounds like its you "Conserv's" who need the watching...

                            And actually, I think the last "lib" President was Clinton. He was actually around for quite a while. Yet, he managed to resist the urge to put a competency-test in place. In fact, it seemed he had far fewer restrictions upon freedoms than Bush has placed...

                              I mean, wouldn't the world be SO much greater without child-minds choosing who runs the country? No more silly people accusing Obama of being a Muslim, no more people accusing his wife of being a terrorist, no more people accusing George W Bush of having a better service record than JOHN KERRY, no more people voting for Obama simply because he's Black, no more people voting for Hilary simply because she's a woman, no more people voting against Obama because he's Black, no more people voting for Obama because he's Democrat, no more people voting for McCain because he's a Republican, etc. Imagine a world like that. If you are willing or able, that is...
