A very intriguing concept, and I find it quite provocative. The statue lends its Greco-Roman classicism to the model, rendering her more than human. Excellent use (and thankfully not overuse) of soft lighting highlights this effect without drawing attention away from it. The viewer is invited to reflect on more than just the painting, but on the meaning of beauty and our lingering fascination with the Classical ideal of proportionate body.
The angle of the statue figure bothers me ever so slightly. I feel like the statue is just slightly too angled into the foreground, and that practical consideration saps just a tiny bit of the surrealism for me. This is not enough, however, to overwhelm the meaning of the piece.
One final thought: I wonder why the artist chose to keep the model in an identical position as the statue. As a feat in itself, the matching is flawless. However, I wonder if meaning could have been even more poignantly suggested through subtle differences in the poses or demeanor of the model and the statue.
