This sculpture struck a chord inside me and stayed with me, and was definitely in mind when I decided to start my "Perfect: Urban Nudes Project." The women that this work of art idealized were out there and too often felt that their shape and size were undesirable.Or at least not echoed in today's media in a favorable light.
One day I hope that my book helps change that and dispel the idea of any ideal to aspire to. Until that day... here's to the zaftig women! Long may they reign.
