I wish they'd have presented Barbie as Dalí's Venus de Milo with Drawers instead of the more ubiquitous Aphrodite of Milos. The poofs in Dalí's piece are much more fitting for the Barbs.

"Ma Muse" or "M'amuse"?

Um. An Avatar screen-cap is a "famous artwork" now?

I don't think so.

Barbie simply doesn't have the Mona Lisa smile.

Nor did they get the angle on her head right for the Mona Lisa. If you're going to do something you should do it right.

Unless you put Barbie in Guernica, you're still playing in the minors.
