LOVE this lesson, but can't show it because of the breasts on the statue of Parvati:( Could you take that out?

Hi Heather. Thanks for the comment. I'm pleased you like the lesson. I understand nudity in art is a challenging force for many of us to deal with, but instead of avoiding it, perhaps you could take this as an opportunity to broach the topic of nudity in art. There's a helpful free resource produced by the Art Institute of Chicago exploring how to talk about nudity in art: http://www.artic.edu/aic/collections/citi/resources/Rsrc_001627.pdf
