Fiber glass, hollow construction, life-size, shop display model.

 

Got a call from a local signwriter. " Unusual job on mate! A girl in need of......... well?!"

So I turned up and saw this life-size figure, that although had obviously already undergone some serious repairs, was still in need of more. The end customer was a local taxi cab firm. They were about to open a shop frontage in town and the owner had decided he wanted this item on show in his window.

I've no idea of her history but the cut of the bathing costume said 1950's to me. I wondered who made her originally, and what had been the purpose of her existence. Then I set to work. You can see a potted history of my work on her by clicking here.
