This image is quite distracting from the one that follows it, so I thought I'd write a little bit about it to help to put some distance between the two. This is simply a window display of some mannequins in underwear, but somehow I find it charming. The female torso in the purple undergarments at center-right seems to be touching the back of the main-central male who's wearing a shirt but no pants - she seems to be supporting him, and in a way, isn't that always the way life is? ;) To the left we have a woman who's wearing stockings, but also a tie... and to the far right the male has his wallet out with several bills showing. Hmm.... ? So I'm not sure what the person that put this display together intended, but you can certainly read a story into it if you want to; and that's art to a certain extent, giving the viewer or reader enough of a story that they're taken in, but also leaving them enough room for them to add something of their own experience into the mix.
