Looking for a nude profile

2010-01-04 06:10:55.134395+00 by Dan Lyke 5 comments

After my music note themed speaker shelves I've been thinking about a shelf for the bathroom. Seeing some images from Chris Newhard that were on the wall of Aqus Cafe (May require Facebook login), more of Chris Newhard's work at the Solomon Dubnick gallery, although neither of those have the one that inspired me, made me think that a nude profile would make a great shelf support.

So I'm looking for some images to inspire me on a profile that'd work for this. Male or female is fine. Probably arms overhead, definitely a curved torso. This image from Vintage Pulchritude, or maybe the woman on the left of this one, the second down here, but all of those are going to require some re-imagining to try to see as a shelf bracket, including figuring out what to do with arms that would be out in space, and none of them has as strong a sense of profile as I'd like to find.

Anyone got a suggestion for inspiration?

Thanks for the kick to remind me that this doesn't just have to be a traditional "L". I don't think the space I was thinking of this for demands two shelves, but that's a good enough idea that I may have to build more...

I haven't seen one recently, but if memory serves, a truck mud flap image that was popular in the 90s might make a good support.

Or how about: http://www.shaynes.com/Nudes7F...eimages/Best90_BL_080803_023.htm rotated 90 degrees, one shelf supported at the knee, one at the elbow?

An anonymous correspondent has suggested http://www.shaynes.com/Nudes7F...eimages/Best99_BL_090403_194.htm I think the pose is strong, though the model may be a bit to skinny to work in profile only.

It's a good idea, will be difficult to execute well. The concept of 'sexy' has changed, I wonder what a man/woman of the age of the 1800's/early 1900's would think of the typical 'Cosmo' cover girl ideal of sexy/beautiful.
