May 30 (UPI) -- Sculptor Daniel Edwards has become famous for casting nude celebrities, and Kim Kardashian is next on the list.

Her baby is too, as Edwards' sculpture portrays Kardashian pregnant and naked, with "lactiferous breasts" and a "voluminous" belly, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Gallery-goers will be allowed to touch the sculpture, baby bump and all for "good luck and success," Edwards said.

"I was inspired by the beauty of Kim Kardashian and felt quite put-off by the media's criticism of her weight gain during pregnancy," Edwards said.

The piece is called "L.A. Fertility" and will debut June 5 at LAB ART Gallery in Los Angeles. It is part of a series of pregnant pieces, including his 2006 sculpture of Britney Spears giving birth in the buff on a bearskin rug.
