Venus ?

Found this piece of urban art on the wall of a boatyard shed along a river in Brittany over the New Year's holidays just a few short weeks ago. As graffiti goes, I thought it was more tasteful than much of what one sees in many urban environments. Maybe not on a par with the Winged Victory of Samothrace, or the Venus de Milo, but not bad, not bad at all. Maybe at least on the level of the Venus of Willendorf ? I liked the way the artist imitated photographic film along the edges, and the shades of blue used were out of this world.
