Old, Norse Warrior

Here’s more from my «Mannequin & Music» project.

This mannequin is an old, viking warrior, so I thought it’s suitable to pair him with some Norwegian Black Metal music. Black metal is an extreme subgenre of heavy metal music and Norway’s largest ‘cultural export’.

This band is called Taake (fog/mist) and the song is called Orkan (hurricane)

If you want to experience Taake live, they’ll be playing at the Black Music festival in Oslo in March.  For more info, check out www.infernofestival.net

Mannequins & Music. The combination continues.

Inspector ’71 is the title of another tune by the Norwegian band Kåre & The Cavemen.

Mannequin comes from the French word mannequin, which had acquired the meaning “an artist’s jointed model”, which in turn came from the Middle Dutch word manneken, meaning “little man, figurine”
