Mannequins have always left me slightly uncomfortable, and this disturbing collection of dummy photographs makes my point.
Pediophobia is the term given to the fear of children or dolls, according to Wikipedia. We all remember the ‘Chucky’ movies. Well, I can say I never saw any of them due to my own pediophobic tendencies.
I’m no psychiatrist, but I think we expect to see kids running, playing and laughing, and a mannequin of a child--cheerful or not--is just too static. We are accustomed to seeing adult models posing motionless in austere positions, but children in that state just tends to give us the willies.
Go ahead, check them out, if you can take it.
