This reminds me of a street game we played as kids in Brooklyn, where the person who was "it" got to call "Freeze!" and the last person to do so, lost. Only here, it's all grown-ups, the women and costumes are all beautiful (and some of them wearing nude bodysuits), and they are re-creating historic tableaux-vivants. Female beauty as theatre! Wow. It must have been an awe-inspiring and erotic spectacle.

"Faultless Female Forms Posing upon a great revolving pedestal."

"In classic, Chaste, and fascinating perfect facsimiles of master marble groups and pictures. An original genuine 20th Century Triumph."

Chaste? I'm sorry, I've seen the Three graces up close, and that's about as far from chaste as one can get.

Then again, I really love sculpture.
