Tasteful Nude Governor?

Is it her? Would you really care if it was?

HELENA - A new sculpture on a building near downtown Helena, intended to depict key historical players in the city's history, includes a naked bordello dancer that some say has a striking resemblance to Gov. Judy Martz.

Martz, driven in a Montana Highway Patrol car and accompanied by top aides, left her office in the Capitol on Thursday to examine the sculptured mural. She called it a "stretch of the imagination" that the artist sculpted her face on the naked dancer that's kicking up her heels with two other unclothed women.

"It's definitely not her," Kristine Veith, the Seattle artist who created the work, "The Entrepreneurial Spirit of Helena," said in a phone interview. "I don't think I even know what Judy Martz looks like."

Decide for yourself...

It's the attention to detail that impresses me so much. In this case, the helmet hair, the glasses, the smile. All so realistic. And look, they even colored its mouth with lipstick.

The face is hers alright, it's the rest of the statue that might be somebody else.
