Tomkitten's first poop immortalised

By Tracey Cooper → More by this author
Published Friday 1st September 2006 12:43 GMT

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes (aka TomKat) have kept 19-week-old daughter Suri well out of the public eye, but the world was given an unusual preview of the much-speculated over sprog with a bronze cast commemorating her first poop popping up on eBay.

The life-size replica poop, a work of Daniel Edwards, the same artist that brought us the controversial nude Britney Spears birthing sculpture, is currently being shown at the Capla Kesting gallery in Brooklyn, New York, while the auction is taking place.

At time of writing, bidding for the repro stool stood at $7,000. The auction is running till 9 September, with all proceeds of the excretion going to charity.

According to Stuff.co.nz, gallery director David Kesting said: "A bronzed cast of baby's first poop can be a meaningful memento for the family. A baby's first meal of solid food may be a baby's first meal at the dinner table."

The Capla Gallery insists the sculpture - which was also reportedly based on the popular children's book Everybody Poops - has great depth and is actually a social comment on the culture of celebrity.

A spokesman told the site: "It's partially a statement on modern media that 'celebrity poop' has more entertainment value than health, famine or other critical issues facing society and governments today."

For the record, one eBayers question as to whether the sculpture actually is Suri's poop that has been encased in bronze, was answered thus: "Unfortunately, organic material burns in the heat required to cast bronze. Therefore, Daniel Edwards rendered her first solid defecation as close to the artistic eye as possible." So, we guess that means this is more of tribute poop than anything else.

Lovely.

For those that miss out on the auction, a limited number of plastic replicas will also be up for grabs.

I wish they would too. But I just can't believe this one. Wait a second, maybe I can.

It's for sale on e-bay right now if anyone want's to buy it.

Hey, I can't believe half the junk they sell on e-bay, and there are people out there with money to waste I guess.

I don't believe the bronze poop thing tho. I think it is an urban legend. Oops! Wrong thread!

It's probably them on the computer late at night bidding on it, because they want to get someone to meet their reserve.

Good grief. Whatever happened to just bronzing the baby shoes? You gotta hand it to this artist though. He certainly knows how to get people excited and how to sell his work.

I would think it would be more of a bronze smear or something...do 19 week old babies even have solid poop? I've never seen it...

How can her poop be bronze when she's only fed by a silver spoon?

Shouldn't the first poop be gold, the second poop silver, and the third poop bronze?

Sorry. I don't believe it. Cruise is nuts, but not that nuts. I think the media is making it up because he and Katie want to keep their child out of the limelight, and the press can't get their precious pictures.

I mean, they paid millions for pictures of Brad and Angelina's baby. The media is nuts. And in the end, who cares? A baby looks like a baby. The only ones who would say otherwise and be that interested are the baby's parents, close family and friends. The public will glance, say, oh that's cute, and move on. Hardly worth millions.

I think the first time Dick Cheney lets out a poop they should commemorate it in bronze as well.

Yes...yes...very true... I just can't stomach the smell... it's like a 45 min ordeal if I'm given poppy duty... uggh... hopefully I'll be better by the time I have my own children... if not.. daddy better be able to stomach it...better list that on the dating application... so if he's not able to change dirty diapers...then he's not worth the investment... ROFL... my poor children...

Now THAT is officially the funniest thing I've heard all day! lmbo

Ok, I don't believe this whole thing for a second. First of all, 19 week old babies don't *have* solid stools, unless my 4 nieces and nephews are abnormal, and if even if they did, nobody would *actually* be crazy enough to have it bronzed, would they? And even if someone WAS crazy enough to have this bronzed, it wouldn't be 2 people who are doing everything they can to keep their child OUT of the limelight. No way. This is all an elaborate hoax, IMHO.

Way, way south.
It's a big joke that they were talking about on CNN or Fox News last night. The artist is using it to poke fun at society's rabid interest in the Cruise baby.
