A Favorite Bust

In France, for two centuries now, the revolution of 1789 and its goals of liberty, equality and fraternity have been summed up in one woman's name: Marianne, the mythical heroine who carried the flag at the storming of the Bastille.

But a 20th/21st century woman of France also embodies ideals of the nation: BB: Brigitte Bardot.

Put the two together and voilà! A nation's favorite bust!
