I tend to find that mannequins polarize people, much like clowns. You either like them or hate them. Now becoming more or less outdated in favor of more modern ways of displaying clothes, there is most certainly something strange about the mannequin.
Artists, shops, visual merchandisers have all turned to the mannequin for creative inspiration. As this gallery shows, the results are somewhat random to say the least.
Having owned a Basset Hound (Fungus the Boneyman), I have to say the dog mannequins are by far the best.
