    I saw this at Urban Ore yesterday and would have purchased it at the $155 price, except it is way too big and i have no room for it. it's over 7 ft long, but in perfect condition. I'd say it's from 1900-1920. It has very nice brass hooks for hanging too. i've never seen one like it before. It's made of molded and painted plaster on board. it's a little bit pornographic, rather than artistic, but probably a good representation of common taste / attitudes towards nudity of the period.

      it kind of reminds me of a 'Diana' hunt scene. alot of what would be considered 'pornography' was disguised as 'classical' in the late 1800s/early 1900s.
