    The bust is great but I have one question. I checked the wikipedia entry and there is a painting of the the princess where she has the eypatch on the right eye. The bust has the eyepatch on the left eye. Another painting on the net I 've found shows the patch on the right eye too. Now either the paintings wrong or the bust. I've read about a Tv miniseries here http://www.themakeupgallery.info/period/c16/spain/eboli.htm in which the left eye is covered by the eyepatch. Maybe they made the bust by the Tv series. Do someone know if the bust is historically right or not?

    I don't know if it's historically correct or not, but who doesn't dig a chick with huge e-hems, and and eye patch? I'm just sayin'.

    Does it matter? The 36Ds are probably not historically accurate.

    Who's looking at the eye patch?

    The eye patch does appear to have been reversed and judging from the portrait(s) on Google images, her face appears to have been fuller. It does look lke a fun bust to paint and for the most part her bits and piece (historically accurate or not) are covered.

    Nice bust - yeah we've all noticed,:mad: would be interesting to find out if the eyepatch is correct, not a major point though.;):cool:

    Seems like it's definitely the right eye - movies work on artistic license I suppose.;)

    Well, I can see two good reasons to buy this bust.

    Yeah it sure looks like it was the right eye, not the left.

    Matthew, it's also a shame the opportunity to offer an unusual historical subject like this was wasted - a straightforward accurate portrait of the lady in period dress would have been much more interesting all round IMO.

    for my taste they look all very the same,and the body proportions are more than overdone.those boobs have zeppelin size.
    one should grind them down and rebuilt the front to an more normal level.then it could look quite nice...
    cheers
