KDO - I've often wondered where these came from, now I know - many thanks.
Are there any photos of the sculpture ?
Not all the pictures were reposted, I see, at this writing.
A little extra information (you'll have to take my word for it, as I don't recall exact sources with dates, etc.): in an issue of Playboy from the 1960s I saw a couple of these pictures, and a picture of Sepy Dobronyi working on the sculpture, which was not life-sized; it was maybe 12-15 inches tall. One of the pictures was retouched or otherwise censored since in those days Playboy did not show pubic hair. In a much later issue Playboy did show the picture with pubic hair in full view.
Anyway, if I recall correctly, Playboy claimed that La Ekberg did not like the sculpture and had then-husband, the muscular Anthony Steel, rearrange Dobronyi's chin.
The model studies were from, I think, 1956. Amazing, in hindsight, how her breasts were considered so enormous at that time. She did "blossom" considerably by the time she appeared in La Dolce Vita in 1960.
Increasing, almost-mainstream acceptance and celebration of very well-endowed girls and women in the ensuing decades has caused many thousands of professional and amateur models to pose, fully covered, showing cleavage and nude. Girl-watching just keeps getting better!
