A rare large-format monochrome publicity photograph, depicting Andress at the moment she famously emerged from the sea in that iconic white bikini - this has been cited amongst the greatest moments in film and one of the most erotic; in a 2003 UK Survey by Channel 4, it was voted number one in "the 100 Greatest Sexy Moments" of cinema. The lower part of the bikini features a wide white British Army belt with brass buckles and fittings, and a scabbard on the left side to hold a large knife. The actual bikini was sold by Christie's auctioneers for £35,000 in 2001. 42x56cm
Framed and glazed to a high-standard, offered in very good original condition, hand-signed clearly in black ink by Andress.
