Nude giraffe descending a staircase

Some of you artofiles (is that a thing?) may have seen this painting by Marcel Duchamp before. It is called "Nude Descending a Staircase" (don't worry, there's no visible bosoms):

Well, the talented artist, Katherine Downie (no relation*) made this version of it with a balloon animal giraffe descending a staircase. It makes me laugh every time (there ARE visible bosoms on this one - you just have to look closely**):

Katherine is auctioning this original painting of the giraffe descending a staircase over on her art blog (link). All the info is over there too.

If you are looking to buy a very affordable piece of original art to impress all your artofile friends, head over and try to outbid me! You won't regret it. It looks even better in person. It's rated PG-13 for nude giraffe bits.
