Let sleeping giants awake

Western classical art, from ancient Greece through today, is replete with veiled eroticism. While I’m all for suggestion and innuendo, I also like the idea using the classical style but with less coyness.

I left the veil on this one as I like how feeble, or facetious, attempts at decorum enhance the eroticism.
