This was an idea I had this winter. We had these artists mannequins knocking around the house , so I gathered them up and had them on a window sill next to my computer for most of the year. There’s something very appealing about them. There’s also something very funny about them because everyone feels the need to alter their position in some way…so when I look at them it’s as if they’ve taken on a life of their own!
This year, I decided to line them up on my mantlepiece and make them look as if they were laden down with gifts, carrier bags, rolls of wrapping paper. I’m going to do it again next year but I need a few more mannequins so I’ve got a crowd of them marching right across. Sometimes you need numbers for IMPACT!
