I think we should drop the "Art" entry about the hammer-and-sickle tableau in Kerala. That's not a statue: it's people painted gold and posing. Unless someone can think of another place to put it, I'm going to cut it out.

Deleted this:

  • Some real-life statues in the world do contain women in midriffs, though less common than women in birthday suits. This monument in Kerala, India, built by Indian Communists, of all people, shows a bare-chested worker raising a hammer and a female peasant holding a sickle to form the hammer and sickle logo. [1] Even though the woman is rather ugly, her attire is somewhat a Fetish Fuel by Dirty Communists, for Dirty Communists.

How does Mulan count? I watched the whole movie recently and nothing.

Remember when she's been hurt and is in a tent, or something like that? She's only wearing trousers and chest binding, so when she pushes off the blanket her midriff is bared.

Are real life examples allowed? 'Cause I work next to a tattoo parlor and almost all the girls I see go in there either have a transparent top and bra on or just have a midriff shirt to begin with and some come out with their shirts rolled up.

I guess you could post it as a trope seen with girls tho love tattoos, you see it with people like Kat Von D for instance.

Kind of funny that this is still so common in cartoons and comics. At least where I'm from, bare midriffs are so late nineties =P

'Cause midriffs are still sexy? At least I think so. =P

Late 90s or no , they're still quite appealing.

Sadly it's not seen as a cute thing anymore like before, but it's now seen like a whore thing, I remind a lot of characters in the past cartoons who bared their midriff as a cute trend, but now it's seen as something that just a prostitute would do.
