 Just two more pieces might have made all the differencein shape of face and breast, yielding a fair approximation of the Venus de Milo...

 ...but since hermaphrodites were very desirable in Greece and Rome, at least as models for sensuous sculptures, maybe this unintentionally androgenous drawing can be considered okay as is.

 why not :-) this is exactly the way how accidental hermafrodites occurs in nature: a couple of exceeding pieces in the genetic instructions :-)

 It is a beautiful depiction - and you are right, I would have accepted male or female from the face. But that is true for many who are youthful and beautiful.

 the faces in ancient buddhist sacred wall hangings are often impossible to distinguish between male and female - so, I think it's just HUMAN when a face can go either way

 the reasons for distinguishing M vs F include (a) probability of attack, (b) F were often treated as chattel/slaves (property owned by M). sigh.

 To let you know - I greatly enjoyed your collection of faves. I started only recently, due to some nastiness in earlier years - put me off the rating idea.
