Not good enough

To recall why this series is here, go to thisĀ original post. Or I”ll just summarise it – The City of Tea Tree Gully banned a few naked images from their 2008 community art exhibition. One was a naked bust. The sort of thing that’s been done and exhibited in public for hundreds of years.

So each Wednesday until I run out of material, we’re getting a picture from somewhere in the world, of something that would be banned in The City of Tea Tree Gully.

Today’s exciting installment comes courtesy of theĀ Tuillerie Gardens, in Paris. That’s in France.


You’ll notice that the Lady In Question here is not just a bust – Full Frontal Nudity Including All The Rude Bits are on display here.

Worse – there are families present kicking a ball around ! Surely they must be offended. They don’t LOOK offended, but perhaps they hide it well. Following the Bill Henson photo scandal, I’m sure somebody could ask Kevin Rudd what he thinks. His response would, of course, be predictable. Sickened, he’d be, sickened.

This sort of disgusting stuff should not be allowed. Clearly the citizens of Paris are hardened to this kind of depravity, either that or they have become corrupted by the loose morals that such terrible displays of public nudity will inevitably lead to.

Naked Ladies in Public Parks. Good enough for Paris. Not good enough for Tea Tree Gully.


She looks like she should be pushing a pram or something. Frankly I find her hairstyle more offensive! And you just had to mention “Paris” didn’t you!

…there *is* one bloke in the background who is seemingly running away in shock and horror.

Interesting to see that cosmetically-enhanced, gravity-defying breasts were around in the 18thC as well – though the surgical before and after-care might not have been so good.

Suggest Kath has a look at Dina Vierny on Wikipedia and Musee Maillol. Also see
for an obituary of Vierny who died at 89 after an interesting and adventurous life.
