Godiva

By Saridek
Lady Godiva of Coventry makes her famous ride. The whole thing about hiding herself with her hair was added to the story much later when prudery reigned. I see her as perhaps being more comfortable with the occasion.
I also included myself in the picture as "Peeping Tom" the spectator that was struck blind for looking. This was another added legend meant to teach a "moral" lesson.

Amazing work! As both a nudist and an appreciator of the human form, I don't want to live in a world where you can't even look at a woman's body when she's riding through the streets naked. As George R. R. Martin once wrote, "what mad cruel god would give a man eyes and tell him he must forever keep them shut, and never look at all the beauty in the world?"

Whoa, that may be the best interpretation of Godiva that I've ever seen. You did really beautiful work with all of her hair, and the setting is excellent.
beautiful work!
