mannequins of jersey


i snapped this pix while wandering around journal square in jersey city, near my workplace. the child mannequins creeped me out. this particular kid seemed like he was crying out in pain. maybe because some of his mannequin fingers were missing and his teeth & mouth were severely chipped. he's been locked in a glass case since the 60s from what i can tell. oh, wikipedia notes that manneken is dutch for little man. makes perfect sense.
