On a side (semi-related note), I have begun reading a book that I am totally in love with! Shan Sa's Alexander and Alestria. It is beautifully written (you can tell Shan Sa has also done some poetry. The words she chose are perfect in every way) and incredibly evocative of the time and romance.
I would suggest to you all to find the nearest copy and pick it up. You won't be sorry.
Finally, here are some pictures of centaur couples to ogle and drool over. I so wish I had the artistic talent - this are absolutely gorgeous drawings.
There does appear to be other versions of this artwork. See here.

And, then there is this one... so cruel, so amazing.
