Nude Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez Statuette: Art or Illegal?

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez together are golden… literally! Sculptor Daniel Edwards’ latest work of art is a gold statue of the young superstars. Edwards got to work and carved the likeness of Justin and Selena wearing only a Canadian Maple Leaf and Texas Lone Star covering their privates, and the words “Justin & Selena Forever” carved at the base of the statue.

Clearly Edwards is a Juslena fan!

Justin and Selena aren’t the first celebrity couple he has sculpted. In 2009, Edwards’ made a statue of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in a lovers’ embrace titled simply ‘Brangelina.’

Should we really be that surprised though? Edwards’ previous work includes Britney Spears giving birth, Paris Hilton’s insides, a topless Michelle Obama and Angelina Jolie nursing.

But with Justin being only 17 years old, controversy has arisen, with the question: Is it even LEGAL that Justin is depicted in the nude?

Do you think Daniel Edwards’ carved statue of a naked Justin and Selena considered a work of “art” or is it plain illegal?
