‘You look somewhere else, then you see something different.’
– Mehmet Murat ildan
I saw a tweet this week about early erotic statues of women. It was suggesting that the rounded, curvaceous shapes of this early art were because the artists were women looking down at their own bodies. This viewpoint provided a different perspective and, therefore, these different shapes.
I love this! What a celebration of our bodies; what an introspective and personal celebration.
Of course, I have been paying particularly close attention to my own body recently and the changes it’s going through, and I thought I would try photographing that same view from above.
And I like it! I like these curves – I like that my belly already obscures my feet entirely, I like the depth of my cleavage. And I like looking down on my body from this ‘new’ perspective with a new introspective mindset.

I have been following the statue story and find the new interpretation makes so much more sense.
Your pics are lovely! 🙂
These are lovely images and the accompanying information about the statues is so interesting 🙂
This is one reason I miss being on Twitter – these kinds of discussions. What a beautiful interpretation, yours and theirs.
Oh I really love your pics, to see things from your view, Livvy. And the information is so interesting. I might have to try and see what my view is…
Your body and current state are all that is beautiful in the world! Thank you so much for sharing these wonderful pics as your body changes and your tummy grows.
Great pics, thank you for sharing them!
Beautiful images, I saw the interpretation of the figurines online too, it’s fascinating and makes perfect t sense! Gorgeous x
awesome angle. 🙂
I did not know that about these ancient statues. Being very short I always assume this is the view lots of people get of me, looking down into my cleavage
This is an amazing idea! A wonderful point of view on both yourself and the ancients!
It’s a great perspective. Feeling and seeing your body swell this way. Thanks for sharing.
It’s surprising how different,y we see ourselves as opposed to what others see isn’t it?
