Looks like another excuse to show scantily-clad ladies. Sure to be a hit. Looking forward to the review and listing description. lol!

I like a bit of witchcraft will be interesting to see no doubt will have a female figure in it. Hopefully it's a little bit different than the normal style

Other than the Hildegard Valkyrie and the Italia/Germania Allegory (both women kept at arms length and respectable) rounds I purchased, I'm not interested in what Germania has and is churning out. For me, there is a definite cutoff in the way that women are depicted on coins/rounds. This scantily clad witchcraft woman is a prime example of what I don't like.

The Hildegard Valkyrie is well-clothed.

I am hoping the designers go a different direction on it, but it is Germania so I doubt that will happen. At the moment there is so many really good quality pieces and designs coming out with other mints, they need to up their game a bit

I have the Le Grand Mint Aphrodite and Adonis on order. She is even less well clothed, but absolutely beautiful. They can do faces too. lol!

I was hoping for a different direction too. Unfortunately, their train is running full steam with these series.

I can appreciate art like that in a museum. But I'm not going to stop by their gift shop to buy a mini sculpture, picture or silver round of it. Just not my bag.

Each to their own @Periodic Table . I grew up with the classical tradition, so it's not something I find offensive. Having said that, I am not at all keen on the Germania series of female figures: they are to my mind a schoolboy idea of a female form, with a rather distorted reality. The classical tradition does at least seek out the beauty in both male and female form.
