Well you are resourceful, Wolfgang.

What started you on the path to this unusual image? Were you inspired by some image in a shop window where someone was preparing a manaquin for display and placed a wig down in a position that you thought interesting or what triggered this

HI

I was standing behind this stool with its three legs and its woolen seating, looked down on it and enjoyed the shadows on the wooden floor caused by a window in front and the sunlight of midafternoon ... simple as that.

Now it comes to life! Before it was strange, unconnected and even absurd.

Interesting how your simple story locks everything foreign into this standard universe we know as we do, and becomes so normal!
