Ebay advert for dolls vs Michel Foucault’s The Spectacle of the Scaffold (a mash-up)

A nice lot of Sindy

A 1975 ballet body
with ball joint hands
that are stuck fast to the arms,
double cup waist
a torch of burning wax

All legs click and hold well
reduced to ashes
his ashes

Some toes have bite marks

doll has lost two fingers and thumb
she has hinged hands, one leg has a
small hole on the back ankle

to sever the sinews
his sleeves rolled up, took the steel pincers

non bending ankles
has a bit of bleed around her mouth.

One head for reroot
needs new paint on her face

Nice lot for dolly hobbies

Pardon, my God! Pardon, Lord.

three heads
lovely blonde hair
no plugs missing
two heads
good face
paint and good lashes

Two more horses
which made six horses

The arms are broken but they still bend and
hold and have not cut through rubber

Other body bits and pieces
need cleaning up and one leg has a rip
around the back of the ankle

nice project for someone

Kiss me, gentlemen.

    yeah i think michel would dig this.have you seen the Michel Foucault action figure: http://www.theory.org.uk/action.htm and Lego set http://www.theory.org.uk/lego-theorists.htm: “with Lego San Francisco S/M Dungeon for older boys and girls.”

  2. Tom says:

    OMG (yep) that’s utterly brilliant Sophie. I want one. Love how the action figure comes ‘Shrouded in a special removeable French cloak’. Ace.

    But the Lego figure – surely that’s just Indiana Jones? A thoughtful character, yes, but no Foucault.

    This is “my” Dollphoto you are using? This doll is “not broken” and it has never been on EBAY! So my photo is not relevant to your wordings!

  4. Tom says:

    And a mighty fine photo it was too. I’ve removed it from my ‘wordings’ as requested.

    Thank you…… I will come back and visit your site.
