More Schiaparelli Savoir Faire

What happens when the designer with the most savoir faire and the photographer which broke all the rules come together in the 1930’s??

The result is below. Just one of the many photographs Man Ray took of the great Schiaparelli! Lots of classic principles and surrealistic themes come together in this shot of Schiaparelli. Is it a modern day interpretation of the Venus de Milo, one of the most recognised statues of all time, or is it Man Ray’s interpretation of Schiaparelli as a modern day Venus? I will let you decide!
