Yinka Shonibare

I chose Planets in my Head, Philosophy by Yinka Shonibare because he usually does not include a head on his mannequins to keep them universal. This piece is still universal being that there is no actual facial features however, I like that he used a globe of the planets as the head of the mannequin. This collection of his is interesting because he poses each one in a different manner. This one is reading, symbolizing philosophy. There are others that show literature, physics, music, arts, etc.
