DescriptionThis color photograph shows a blue room with three glass-covered mannequins and two men in blue robes. The room has two walls and the ceiling visible. Three mannequins, covered in mosaic glass pieces in multiple shades of blue, hang upright from the ceiling, their heads touching the surface. Two live men hang upside down from the ceiling and appear as if they are going to fall. The ceiling is swathed in the same mosaic tiles that are on the mannequins. Hundreds of glass dragonflies, interspersed with miniature marshmallows, are scattered on the walls.
