Oprah's Dead Bitches!

5/14/2008 7:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Proving everything she touches turns to gold, Oprah Winfrey's dead dogs have been turned into a masterpiece.
Oprah's dead dogs
A life-size monument by controversial sculptor Daniel Edwards depicts conjoined-at-the-hip 'puppy versions' of Oprah's late Cocker Spaniel Sophie and Golden Retriever Gracie atop of the unwed 54-year-old's head. So wrong.

"Memories of Sophie and Gracie: A Puppies' Memorial" -- which opens May 22 at the Leo Kesting Gallery -- hopes to highlight "the overlooked threat of accidental pet fatality by common household products." Sophie died earlier this year of kidney failure, while Gracie passed in 2007 from choking on a ball.

This is the latest A-list mock of art created by Edwards -- the same artist responsible for The Paris Hilton Autopsy and the sculpture of a nude Britney Spears giving birth on a rug.

If those dogs are life-sized, imagine how huge Oprah's head is. (insert joke here) Honestly, how tall is this memorial??? It looks totally garish and even scary...

OPRAH HAS RACISTS & ANTI-AMERICAN FRIENDS. ABC SHOULD FIRE HER, IF I GET ANY MAIL FROM HER TO SUBSCRIBE TO HER MAGAZINE " I SHRED IT" & IF SHE THINKS OBAMA WILL WIN, SHE"S WRONG. ALL OF US TRUE & HONEST AMERICANS WHO LOVE OUR COUNTRY WILL SWITCH IN NOVEMEMBER & VOTE REPUBLICAN! & if by CHANCE he does win, our country will be doomed from disaster, not only is obama sat in that church for 20 years listening to racist remarks anti american remarks etc... he also has a anti-american friend AYERS as well as that rezko guy in the courts now in Chicago "you know, the slum lord" & Is Obama & his wife on the board of the university of chicago hospital? the hospital that wants PROOF that you can pay your bill BEFORE they see you!! I wonder how much money they get. & that George sorros at move on.org who is FUNDING obama's campaign for George "May the Lord forgive you & stand by yourside....

Thank you #37, thats what I thought...you have garnered at least one less vote for Barack with that statement and thats just from me. do the math on how many more you have influenced as well by those who read these comments and will not vote based on what you wrote.

Maybe you are a white guy trying to get people not to vote for Obama...either way you've convinced me a black man isnt ready for this job.

Media whores    

What could Obama POSSIBLY do for blacks??? If you are black in this country and have even HALF a brain and 2 ounces of drive, you already have it made! There are scholarships JUST for you! Schools JUST for you! Special laws JUST for you! Holidays JUST for you! Clubs, organizations and groups JUST for you! Parades.....JUST for you! This list could go on and on. Bottom line is, you have everything a white person would be labeled a racist for.... and more!!! What are you expecting Obama to do for you?? Give you money for doing nothing? Welfare!...already have that too! Obama is a smart man, I'm sure he realizes that any more favoritism toward blacks would spell the end of any black ever getting into office again.

I'm guessing it's the same person using a multitude of names. And I agree that Oprah didn't commission this. It's just about as silly as the Britney giving birth sculpture.

Gosh, it's an homage to the Egyptians. It's art, but then art is in the eye of the beholder. I wonder what she thinks of it?

the sculpture of Oprah's head and the one of the 2 dogs are each, alone, pretty good, but together look out of place and unconnected. Weird
