Ok well not REAL human torsos, but very cool nonetheless!
I snagged two of these from a flea market – $5 for the two of them! I have, for several years now, belonged to a creative writing community online called The Soul Food Cafe. One of the projects there is called the Creative Armoury Project http://www.outbackonline.net/soulfoodcafe/Armoury.htm and it involves using torso mannequins such as these to create pieces of altered art and using them as a stimulus for writing. I’ve been wanting to undertake this project for ages and now I have the materials with which to do it!!
