Can you only view the first page in a google cache? That's all I can see...so I don't know if anyone mentioned Use Your Illusion or not.

Sadly, that is correct. Much of the old ATU site is now irrecoverable.

If Use Your Illusion doesn't appear on the page above, please post it.

Not an exact copy, but this....

The Creation of Adam (detail) by Michelangelo.

I recall that one caused a bit of a stir, wasn't she underage to be posing naked?

That would be an interesting debate, don't you think.
Apparently thanks to the increasing awareness of the horrible phenomenon that is child abuse and child pornography it has become impossible to make a painting or a photo of an nude underaged person without it being subjected to wild accusations. It's a bit sad to life in a society where all nudity equals pornography, where all nakedness provokes lust and craving. At least, that my opinion.

Yes, her mother complained to Scotland Yard and the use of the image was (I think, temporarily) suspended.

Needless to say, Bow Wow Wow was a Malcolm McLaren project.
