Photo of mother/father/child sleeping spiral-style?

What's that image of the happy mother/father/child sleeping spiral style?

I'm looking for a photograph that I think came from a Banana Republic ad for sweaters many years ago, though I'm sure they weren't the first to come up with the concept.

The ad shows a mother, a father, and a child, all lying or sleeping in a bed, all spiraled out so the mother and father are oriented opposite ways and the kid is between them. They're all wearing Banana Republic sweaters, but I want to find the photo not for its sweater content but because it's a beautiful picture of a nice happy family.

Anyone know the ad I mean? Anyone know where I can find that image, or equivalent?

I think this ad is what you're looking for.

Wow. Yes, that's the one! You are amazing. That is indeed it.

Not to seem ungrateful, but does anyone have any ideas about how I could find the whole image in electronic form? I feel like it was on the web at one point without the guy's head being chopped off. Either way, THANK YOU!

Here's another version where the words aren't cut off but the guy's head is even more incomplete.
