Genu Valgum

The little boy seems to have a case of knock-knees!!


"Stand still, kid. Once I've finished mounting James--I'll start working on you."


Words escape me! I can't wrap my head around how weird this is!!!


The boy on the right looks so lifelike. Ummm, that is a boy, right?

Dangerous Treading

I had the boy-being-measured picture as my desktop background until someone pointed out the obvious reaction from anyone not a Shorpyite, like myself.

If I download this, the FBI will want to know who, I mean, what I sell on they are hauling me away.

If I Could Turn Back Time

Sonny and Cher, the beginning?


It's not like you can just ring up and request a 600 year-old Peruvian infant...

Clear the cache! Clear the cache!

Between this and the kid being measured for pants sizes, the feds will be on my trail soon!

Dutch Boy Paint Model

Hmmm . . . to my way of thinking, the little boy model looks like he could be more representative of "Dutch Boy Paints" than a Native American!
Did the sculptor start off with lots-o-clay to simulate the pudgy little white boy, and then scrape it down to lean/mean Indian physique??

No Thanks, I'm Stuffed

Taxidermy has come a long way in the past 75 years!

Today, Mr Egberts would probably have had his hard drive seized by the FBI.

Uh oh...

The comment train will be leaving the station shortly...
