Getting up to all kinds of naughty activity, the wooden artist mannequin portrayed in the photo series by Nicolas Vallejos leads an exciting life full of adventure.

Artists often pose the little mannequins in different ways in order to get the right body proportions for their artwork, but Vallejos makes the wooden doll the star of his photo shoot. He dresses it up in different outfits and enacts all of the devious scenarios the doll might get into if it could actually come alive and go out on its own into the world.

The wooden artist mannequin hooks up with Barbie, robs a safe, goes on vacation and shreds the streets on a skateboard, getting the most out of its new-found freedom.
