The design of a new French stamp has enraged the right wing after its designer admitted he had been inspired by the Ukranian Femen leader Inna Shevchencko, who has been granted asylum there.

Revolutionary symbol Marianne, painted bare-breasted by Delacroix in his 1830 painting, is regularly updated, with past models including Brigitte Bardot and Laetitia Casta.
