This is heartbreaking.
NYPD Officer Rafael Ramos is one of the men who was murdered on Saturday in Brooklyn, and he sadly left behind his 13-year-old son Jaden Ramos.
Following the horrible shooting, Jaden posted a message to his Facebook, saying:
It doesn't take an aesthetic expert to tell you Sienna Miller is one of the most beautiful women in the world!
But it did take an artist to use her beauty to remind women how beautiful the natural female form is, even and especially when pregnant!
"I wanted an image that epitomised the human body in its most naturally beautiful state… Certain sections of society are still uncomfortable with the appearance of pregnancy and images of naked expectant mothers are rarely seen.
The power of the painting partly lies in the fact that Sienna is widely regarded as being one of the most naturally beautiful actresses in the world as well as being a fashion icon to a generation of girls. It is a tribute to her courage and self-confidence that she agreed to sit for this."
We couldn't agree more! Brava to both the artist and the muse!
