How about tying in the painting, The Birth of Venus (except there is a bare
woman's breast, I think)? Maybe her hair covers some, so you won't get as
many giggles. High Renaissance, I think. This is if you want the history
lesson, too, it is a famous painting of Venus/goddess-like, huge clam shell,
tons of floral reference...or maybe some Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden
works of art.
