"These manikins, between 6 to 7 inches in length, were made from solid pieces of ivory. The arms were carved separately and are moveable. The thoracic and abdominal walls can be removed, revealing the viscera."
Ummmm is it saying the vagina is like, between the woman's knees? What exactly is going on down there?
@Megasus That's the baby, dangling from the umbilical cord!
@fondue with cheddar ACK
Love me some viscera.
So the second one is what They Might Be Giants meant by "birdhouse in your soul."
@Lisa Frank It's certainly the only bee in my bonnet.
AAAHH I love ("love") when babies are drawn as tiny adults!
@fondue with cheddar - Having not been around babies much since I was a pre-teen, it's been interesting now that about a month ago one of my closest friends and his wife have a kid.
The other night I was hanging out at them for the Oscars, and he announced "Look at how weird my kid is. His arms are so short he can't even touch them over his head!" and then proceeded to raise his son's arms above his head, and his little tiny baby arms can't reach all the way around his gigantic newborn skull.
Then we ridiculed the 5 week old about that fact for like, ten minutes.
@leon s Haha, that's hilarious. One thing I really miss about my niece and nephew being really little is that you can't make fun of them without them knowing.
These pregnancy dolls will never stop being creepy.
Something about dismembered female forms? and the removable nature of the baby being way too evasive about what giving birth is actually like? and the lil baby maybe resembling a tumor or a growth of odd shape?
I want to frame the inexplicably hairy skeleton and hang it on my wall.
@fondue with cheddar I think those are supposed to be veins? I prefer your interpretation, though.
@Blackwatch Plaid The description manages to be both perplexing and evocative: "A skeleton with a thin covering of tendons poses before an apocalyptic sky."
@Amphora "Before an Apocalyptic Sky" is going to be the name of my next prog metal album.
@Blackwatch Plaid Yeah, I knew it wasn't supposed to be hair but it's fun to see it that way. :)
These totally reminds me of this toy that I loved when I was little!
"Some of Casserio’s plates stage a not-so-subtle flirtation. Here the model coyly hides behind a veil of his own body tissue as he bares his innards."
!!!!!!!!! Is anyone else looking at every single one of these oh my god
