One man's art is another man's...

... well,  it is another man's something else.  Consider that a simple picture of a nude woman was too controversial for an art show .  Then consider that a picture of a nude woman on a t-shirt landed a Kuwati man in jail .  After his arrest, the man was promptly "whisked away for interrogation." 

Meanwhile, postcards featuring naked babies were regularly mailed many decades ago.  Yet the curator of a museum who wrote about the popularity of those cards in an historical column that he writes for the internet was unwilling to post an example when he posted his article this week. In 2013. Imagine... okay to mail when Woodrow Wilson was President of the U.S. but too controversial for today's internet!

Nothing is more subject to change than public opinion on nudity.  And nothing is more likely to get you in trouble if you get the public's opinion wrong.


Bare Platypus now offers products with Platypus artwork at the Bare Platypus Souvenir Shop .  You can get a tote bag or a coffee mug, a t-shirt, or all three!  Plus there's more to come.

These designs are one-of-a-kinds that you won't find elsewhere.  Tasteful enough that you can show or serve them to all guests, but unusual enough (and always bare) that they can help you get a conversation going.

You're invited to visit!
