I am not sure if someone posted this previously, I tried looking around, but did not find this particular bit.
Jean-Auguste Ingres' Le Grande Odalisque has long been known to have an impossibly long back. But did you know that in 2004 the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine published an article actually measuring just how long that famous painted back was?
It simply delights that medical professionals did this.
