Spottted at the Pink Parlor: Liberte´, egalite´, fraternite´

Posted by angelcollector87 today on the Pink Parlor is her re-imagined Eugene Delacroix painting of a scene from the French Revolution.

Wow! How much fun is this? Fabulous work!
Below is a reproduction of the original 1830 painting entitled La Liberte´ guidant le peuple


Factoid: According to Wikipedia - The painting inspired the Statue of Liberty in NYC which was given to the United States as a gift from the French only 50 years after Liberty Leading the People had been painted. The statue, which holds a torch in its hand, takes a more stable, immovable stance than the woman in the painting. (OT: Perhaps they never saw Ghostbusters.)

That's one big doll!
