Great Bellies

When I saw the below Alina Szapocznikow sculpture in a magazine today I immediately thought "oh shit its almost bathing suit season". I'm pretty sure the late Polish artist and Holocaust survivor did not have that on her mind when she made these "Great Bellies" sculptures. Yet, there is something along that wavelength going on when you think about the amount of dis-embodied lady parts you see around for purposes of selling something or turning someone on. Yet, I feel like in March everyone feels more like one of these bellies than a sexy boob or leg.
