NEW YORK -- A life-size sculpture of a naked Britney Spears kneeling on a bearskin rug as she gives birth will be on display next month at Brooklyn's Capla Kesting Fine Art gallery.

The sculpture is to appear next to a display case filled with anti-abortion materials.

It was created by Daniel Edwards, who said he never spoke to the 24-year-old pop star or met her, and fashioned her face and figure from photographs.

Edwards said he admires Spears and called the sculpture an idealized figure.

He said there's been an angry response to the artwork but he notes he depicted Spears as she depicted herself -- seductively.

Spears is married to her former backup dancer Kevin Federline and gave birth to their son, Sean Preston, last year. He is the couple's first child.

The singer's publicist didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

When some bloggers heard about the exhibit -- "Monument to Pro-Life: The Birth of Sean Preston" -- the gallery said it received about three thousand e-mails from around the world in just a week, split between anti-abortion and abortion rights opinions.

The gallery said it will hire extra security guards for the free exhibit, which will open April 7 and run for two weeks.

Edwards said the sculpture of Spears was a "new take on pro-life." He said that group normally promotes its views through bloody images of abortion while the sculpture is an image of birth.

Edwards' sculpture of Ted Williams' decapitated head -- which was frozen in the hope that medical science could one day revive the baseball great -- stirred up an artistic storm as well.
