Sculptor Daniel Edwards has created a bare-chested bust of aspiring first lady, Michelle Obama, that has raised some eyebrows.

The bare-shouldered sculpture, called Michelle Obama's Makeover for America, highlights Obama's ethnic African roots while casting her as a US patriot with an American flag etched on her upper right chest.

The Michelle Obama bust is scheduled to be unveiled at the Leo Kesting Gallery in New York City on October 1st.

Implications - Pairing these sculpture with Michelle Obama's social programs aimed at changing the nature of the types of food consumed by America's youth, she seems like she's well on her way to escaping the Jackie Kennedy comparison and establishing her own legacy.
