Paul Manship (1885-1966) - Dancer and Gazelles (1916) above front half-right - Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Sep 2012

This statue exists in lots of editions at various sizes, many of which can be found right here on Flickr. It's clearly designed to be seen from the front, although a few rear views have been posted, for instance: www.flickr.com/photos/amylehr/7481068670/

That's also accompanied by a detailed description, which saves me the job of coming up with one.

 

Although the figure is topless, for me the statue is not so much erotic as charming. Appropriately enough, I suppose - the dancer is charming the gazelles, and she's charmed me too.
