Wow Alexandra, you've raised the bar yet again with that pose!  The raised leg attracts immediate attention of course, but the way the hands are juxtaposed underneath is just as impressive.  I like the right leg with the straps, is it an artificial leg?  I'm unsure because there is normal skin around the ankle area.  I was thinking looking at it, imagine if the model had to pose for life drawing, how long would they keep that pose? :)

Thank you! No, it's not an artificial leg, it a polio shoe (her emotional handicap).
