Landy R. Hales was an inventor as well as an artist. The manniken he invented has a metal "skeleton" with articulating joints and latex rubber "skin". Unfortunately, because of World War II, Landy R. Hales was never able to bring his invention to market. Metal and rubber, the necessary materials for his articulating manniken, were needed for the war effort. We have 5 full size prototypes as well as this small one.
