Inspirations for Ranma ½ manga 4

The above pictures are of Rodin's famous sculpture The Thinker and female form Ranma thinking from the Ranma ½ manga. The pose is used several times in the manga; I chose this particular one because Ranma fan fiction generally claims Ranma would not wear a dress like that. The pose is used frequently in art and generally meant to convey introspection. It is considered an immediately recognizable icon of intellectual activity.
