Ancient Greek Erotica: An Evening With Aphrodite

George Medeiros and Scott Durfee design and make beautiful sculptural art purses and other fashion accessories in St. Pete [Link]. Last year they put on the Egyptian erotic night at the Museum of Fine Arts. On Feb 5th, 2013, they threw Ancient Greek Erotica: An evening with Aphrodite. 

Here are some pictures from that evening....

 George thoughtfully took me to where the models were being photographed...

A Rose by any other name...

Cinthia Samaha had her jewelry on display.

There was an excellent lecture on Greek Eroticism by Dr. Robert Steven Bianchi, from the Fondation Gandur pour L'Art Geneve. Scholarly, randy, informative and entertaining.

The Viktoria Richards chocolate tasting was busy the entire night. Her chocolates are not only fantastic tasting, with new, innovative flavors, but also eye candy, beautifully designed to tantalize from a distance.

Congratulations to George and Scott for fulfilling their mission to beautify the city in many ways, including this show, and to the MFA for hosting it. It was a fabulous evening.
