Every time we visit the great American shopping mall we see them. With their unattainable beauty and body perfection, plastic mannequins stare at us from behind their glass prisons. Tauting and teasing they lure us into the retail trap believing that we could loak and feel like them and their fabulous life styles. 

 

The dazzling magical setting pulls us into their dream, aiming to relieve us of funds we have or have yet to earn. And as we leave, they stand mocking us, knowing we will never fully have what they portray. So the question comes down to, are they caged in behind glass or are we the ones caged by the retail trap?                                                                                                          © 2015 Terry Scopelliti
