One of my favorite pieces of sculpture at the Birmingham Museum of Art has to be this Botero. When I took my 3rd graders for our annual field trip to the museum , I had to find a way to offset the "giggle factor" that would ensue when confronted with the nudity that abounds in a museum. I used the head 'em off at the pass technique. I told them before we went, that they would see a very large nude woman that was made of a brown metal that looked like chocolate. Whenever I saw her, I always thought that I might look like her one day, if I didn't quit eating chocolate! I named her the "Chocolate Lady" and told them to be on the lookout for her. Thankfully, the snickers (no pun intended) turned to squeals of , "Oh look, there's the Chocolate Lady!"
On July 16, Jilly over at Monte Carlo DP, posted Botero's Adam and Eve.
