This lady has on pink fishnet stockings, tall black boots, and leather. She obviously has an interesting lifestyle. Just check the contents of her ottoman - it looks like a whip!

The Clair de Lune series by Master Carver Julie Bharucha introduces us to the stars of Montparnesse, ladies who "lived large" on the Left Bank of the Seine in Paris of the 1920s. She originally created six ladies. Four were recently released as limited edition pieces and one was used as the event piece for the Harmony Kingdom Convention 2000; this is the sixth piece and exists only as a prototype.
