It appears the dancing isn't burning enough calories for these chunky ballerinas, so «Louis» has arranged for them to receive a complimentary year's supply of Slim-Fast...

Pour le 1er Mai, «Louis» vous donne un bouquet de Muguet!

Oh, these are terrific, Lily! Just the laugh I needed tonight! And what great "huge" shadows they make! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I've never seen ballerinas quite like that before. They're great! and so striking against the bright red! I wish I could visit that exhibition. Have a lovely week ahead :)

They look even more fantastic against the bright red background!

They remind me of the ballerina hippos in a certain Disney movie! :=}

Happy SSS!

What a striking photo of those sculptures against the red background. And oh, I look like them, too. Please tell me this baby weight is going to come off at some point...sigh.

Beautiful photo! I love it, with the red background. Love Louis' comment, too.

I think Marie-Noyale in Larchmont also has a Botero statue!

I showed part of a Botero featured in the Columbus Square shopping center on my blog this weekend. These dancers are nice too though!
