      Comments about 2012 France Silver ?10 European Program Proof (Yves Klein):

      This is such a work of art. It is difficult to see in photos how the contours of the face shift with the lighting as well as the mirror finish of the large, horizontal "stripe". The eyes are done VERY well, giving an almost creepy allure. The reverse is also difficult to appreciate in a photo as it is a texture difficult to capture in 2-D. Overall, outstanding!
