Tom Corbin’s Tall Mannequins

Introducing life-size bronze Mannequins by Tom Corbin. Inspired by the small sculptures below, Corbin has sculpted the new figures in a scale that will interact with the viewer in an entirely unique way. The contrast of the grey and black patinas of the dress with the high polished skin surfaces is striking and seductive.
