A majestic woman, commanding respect and reminding us to be on our best behavior. ;)

What a lovely bust of the Duchess of Angouleme, I know a lot of people say she looked very much like a Bourbon, but, for me, this bust bears a strong resemblance to Marie Antoinette, and the Habsburg's regal look. Lovely.

A very majestic bust of La Duchesse. It's sad to see that her life was tumultuous, and in the process lost those closest to her heart.
