    The way the bodies are situated leads you back and fourth from the "woman" to the man. The picture itself isn't actually centered keeping it even more interesting. The image is so intriguing because something like this wouldn't normally be seen during it's time and we know that the audience of the time had to have been captivated by such a unique sight.

    This picture definitely gave me a laugh. It seems like they are deep in conversation, but it's funny that this woman is just a manikin. The image is so different and one-of-a-kind that it's hard to stop looking at the photo. I keep looking back from the man's face to the manikin's face, trying to figure out the meaning of this picture.
