Fashion Backward?

I thought this photo/article was quite interesting.  According to the article the earrings are allegedly based on cultural artwork. I think the important question is, if the images were found in a painting, sculpture, or in a medium other than fashion, would there be as much controversy?  Is the problem that the images are hanging from a model’s ears? Share your thoughts.
