​Italian artist Jean-Baptiste Nini is most famous for his series of terra cotta medallions of Benjamin Franklin produced circa 1777. These medallions have proven very popular over the past two centuries and are still prized by collectors today.

​Possibly better known now due to her association with a brand of chocolates, the Lady Godiva in Anglo-Saxon days was a noblewoman married to Leofric, the Earl of Mercia in what is now central England. Though the legend surrounding her is viewed today rather apocryphally, it nevertheless has survived for at least seven centuries at least in part because of its risqué nature.
