Isn't it amazing how differently we perceive a woman's body now as opposed to when this work of art was created. Art is the truest account of the history of humanity because it cannot be re-written, re-painted, re-sculpted, re-composed. Based on this premise, I wonder what sort of history through our art our generation will be leaving as a legacy to display that which we have valued. I shudder to think.
This particular sculpture is definitely in praise of the female form and the fact that you felt it was important to photograph proves that the artist immortalized the truth of his era. I really loved this one Adrian. :)

J'aime les belles statues autant que les belles peintures ! Si j'étais riche j'aurais de très grandes pièces pour pouvoir en mettre certaines en valeur !
