The Mannequin Graveyard

The-Graveyard04

It's often amazing what you can stumble into. Was walking to Laman 2008 when passing through Muzium Negara we saw this display. The workers were discarding tons of used mannequins used for displays.

It's amazing to see the details on some of these pieces and when I saw them being loaded it hit my mind a question "Where do mannequins go when they die?" We'll we stumbled into one such resting place, it was scary how life like they were and how creepy a pile of them look, it almost human in tragedy to see them.

Still its sad to see them discarded, I imagine they have been on display for years sitting in the stuffy museum displays for people to see them in their historical regalia. Now they are striped naked, bare and discarded as if they are junk. It is a sad fate.

Somehow it just looks scary. Mannequin with heads looks scarier than the ones without.
