Mannequin Lighthouse..



















Winner of the Surreal Phare Design Competition ~ Sadly now forgotten..

Yes its French, it ended up on a French Beach in the the Languedoc-Roussillon area,
the Government lost its nerve at the last moment and tried to hide it in the most remote (in those days) part of France..

These days its quite a headache for the local council, they are sick of cleaning the linen covering and washing off the grafiti..
Thanks for your raves!

I lost this image in my computer for nearly two days, I had a glitch.
Thankfully I found it and finished it just in time for the close of the Man Ray competition...it came 2nd.

I thought the addition of the clothes line, gave it a touch of the 'real life'. Strange, but they now look like gappy teeth! O_O

Great idea Paul! My mother used to be a fashion designer and we had something like this in our garage for fitting clothes. As a result I used to have nightmares as a child as my mother would be missing arms and legs and her head. lol
