    But, taking a step backwards ... if it informs, entertains, inspires, it's art or (not)porn.

    If it arouses, it's porn.

    And I don't think there can be a clear line between porn and (not)porn.
    Porn is probably a word that was derogatorily used by some anal retentive sexually repressed religious nut, and the word I should have used is "eroticism" in my definition, and neither in my opinion is a negative word or a negative response.

    Marko, It is a Krishna that has not shaved anything. I am surprised that you did not know this. They are only to be found North of the US border.

    LOL! it was my lame attempt at humor.

    Comes from a running gag in "The Muppet Movie" ...

    "Uh, excuse me, I'm lost."

    "Have you tried Hari Krishna?"

    I don't know why I posted that, but it came to mind when I read the "lost" comments.

    Oh well ...

There are the referents to classical mythology (Cupid, with his wings and bow), the contemporary symbols of musical instruments with their allusion to performance and education as well as seduction...and the masterful, even revolutionary, understanding of light and shadow, and how to capture them on canvas.
    Is he planning on putting that violin bow up his....

In illustration, most recently an Auguste Rodin exhibit was allowed, but the work was draped. I find that attitude far more revolting than pornography.
    So .... there was a cloth covered statue - and you couldn't see the statue ...?

    Was there a "R. Mutt" signature on the cloth somewhere ... ?
