An L.A. artist and sculptor debuted his statue of a pregnant Kim Kardashian which he has dubbed "L.A. Fertility."
It features Kim with an exaggerated body, wearing the tiara and earrings.
The artist says he "was inspired by the beauty of Kim Kardashian and felt quite put-off by the media's criticism of her weight gain during pregnancy."
Visitors at the ART Gallery were encouraged to rub the statue's belly (ala Buddha) for luck.
***The artist other works have created controversy before. He's sculpted a nude Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, a dead Paris Hilton, and Britney Spears giving birth.
