When needed, the Collections Management Section builds custom mannequins for artifacts. Based on a human model, the mannequin can be built from various materials. For our focus exhibit, Luxurious Layers: Kimonos of the Heian Court, Christa and John of the Collections staff made an ethafoam/polyfill mannequin to hold a royal male kimono.
