It's the nipple and the little glimpse of the pubic triangle. Although it is nice to see that the carpet matches the drapes, the picture is actually more explicit than the original Birth of Venus, whose hands actually seem to cover less territory.

I'm trying to figure out why such simplistic drawing style and pedestrian master knockoffs gets so much awe and attention. Looks more like giggling Junior High School stuff to me.
