German term or phrase: Zitzenbrüste
Roman, das im heutigen Deutschland spielt. Wohnung eines berühmten Architekts, alles weisse Wände, grosse Räume, Glas, und afrikanische Masken und Figuren:

"die dicken Augenlider der Masken, die zu schwer waren, um sich für mehr als einen Sehschlitz zu heben ..., die von Narben geschmückten Frauenkörper mit Zitzenbrüsten waren in eine gleichsam ärtzliche Sphäre von Wissen und Reinheit gehoben ..."

Dies sind also Brüste, in denen die Zitze (verhältnissmässig) gross ist oder sich besonders hervorhebt? Oder ist nur gemeint, dass sie nackt sind, oder dass sie weibliche Brüste sind? Oder ...?

German translation:pointy breasts
Explanation:
Ich verstehe Zitzenbrüste hier als spitze Brüste.

On the left of the composition is a large, shiny, ebony African Goddess figure. She has pointy breasts and full hips, but only a featureless shape for a head.

Oriental women tend to have breast tissue spread over more of the torso (for better insulation in cold climates), while Africans tend to have pointy breasts for exactly the opposite reason.
