She's got beautiful wide shoulders!

Doesn't she? I love that, too. It's the reason I chose the painting.

Gorgeous as always... (weren't they corpulent in those days?)

Of course, I noticed those beautiful white doves right off the bat. *wink* ;0

Well, we're pretty corpulent these days, too! Actually, I love the way she's buxom but fairly slim-hipped. That's not a body type you see often in the porn of the 16th century.

I think those white doves wandered in from another painting, Dawn.
