Looking at her tummy, it is a bit late for a chastity belt – she is already pregnant!

I’d hate to see her go into labor with the key unavailable…

Guys, I’m not so convinced the artist was intending to show that the lady is pregnant.

Artistic styles have changed a lot in five hundred years. Most humaniform art from that era looks oddly proportioned to modern eyes. It’s possible that we are seeing a woman with a pot belly, especially given the way her breasts are drawn as squidgy little spheres.

Overweight or pudgy women of the era were considered the most desirable. It hinted at a luxurious and opulent lifestyle away from the toils of farm life or hard labor. Pale women were more desirable than their well tanned counterparts for the same reason. This is why paintings from that era to the middle 19th century featured mainly portly women. It showed status.
