An incredible distinctive one-of-a-kind mannequin form from around the Meiji Period or Taisho Period c. This has a true Wabi-Sabi aged charm which can only be achieved through time (oxidisation / weather / conditions). Made from multiple layers of newspaper which can be visually seen throughout the piece. Almost like a close-up of former HK’s Kowloon Walled City. The metal is a super sturdy cast iron which has the old company “IMAI” with an umbrella icon embossed. The height can be adjusted below. This is by far the best mannequin form I’ve ever seen. For the true collector. Don’t sleep on this, you’ll never see it again! Approx 150cm x 35cm x 20 (1.5m).
