Oprah and her pooches immortalized in gold-painted bustMay 16th, 2008 - 3:54 pm ICT by admin
New York, May 16 (ANI): Talk show queen Oprah Winfrey is now being immortalized with dogs on her gold-painted head, thanks to the latest creation by controversial pop culture artist, Daniel Edwards.
Memories of Sophie and Gracie: A Puppies’ Memorial is inspired by the passing of the talk show host’s beloved Cocker Spaniel, Sophie, who died after choking on a ball last year, and her Golden Retriever, Gracie, who recently died from kidney failure.
If those were two children that died under those causes, I think the world would freak out, the New York Daily News quoted Edwards, as saying.
Edwards added that he made the piece to point out there are precautionary measures pet owners can do to keep their pets safe.
I think having two pets die within a year means its time to re-evaluate your home. … Oprah just went through this. I think most people would be devastated if it happened to them, he said.
Gallery co-director John Lee said the dogs were placed on Oprah’s mane to suggest the loss might be weighing heavily on the daytime TV icon’s mind.
Winfrey recently dedicated a show investigating abuses at puppy mills to Sophie, whom she said, “gave me 13 years of unconditional love.”
The resin cast statue will be on display at the West Village’s Leo Kesting Gallery on May 22. (ANI)
