Authors reasons upon the fact that a mannequin represents a perfect soulless body replicated in thousands of copies, with no identity, no voice. Author wants to create a surreal situation of ambivalence between the human body and the inanimate one of the mannequin. The young woman, on the other hand, strives to assert her own identity in confrontation with the role models imposed upon her by the society. The model works hard and incessantly in search of harmony; she mimics the mannequin risking to lose her own identity; she juxtaposes with the mannequin; she cuddles it; irreconcilably and on impulse she disjoints it and parts from it forever.
