On our recent buying trip to Paris we found this amazing life sized articulated artist mannequin. It was love at first sight. I went back to look at it 3 times. Sadly it was just to costly for me to purchase. The choice was the mannequin or a new BMW. So next time you happen to be strolling around the Marché aux Puces it may still be there. If you see her send my regards.
This is a large and impressive cut-away model on the original base. It stands almost 32 inches tall. It’s made of paper mache, wood and plaster. All the parts were hand painted. These classroom models were very fragile and most did not survive. The model was manufactured in Germany and distributed through Denoyer-Geppert Company of Chicago…$2800
I once had hair down to my shoulders and a long mustache so “Hipster” I understand. On the other hand “Zeitgeist” is a new one for me so we needed to look it up. I like it so much there may even be a new T-Shirt in our future. If you want to see the rest of the story and pictures go to Maine Antique Digest Article. Tell them the Hipster Zeitgeist sent you.

Yes… This is the real thing. Heres your chance to own a piece of history. What you see is a museum quality object that is at least 500 years old.

This is a very rare antiquity found years ago in Spain. Terra Cotta heads of this type were located in the front of a horse drawn funeral chariot in the 1700 to early 1800s. The head is on a flexible rod and is animated with the movement of the chariot… as if it was mourning the passengers death. This is really a powerful icon and projects great respect. The patina is wonderful and after 200 plus years it still shows some of the original paint. This item can be found at Radio-Guy.com and 1stdibs.com
