Bridal mannequins.

Petrified Wood Park

Let's not forget the high ratio of bad mannequins also found at this glorious locale.

[Darren Collins, 07/18/2011]

Looking at our our own pix of the museum church scene, the woman mannequin used to hold a baby. David Bowie's presence is unexplained. Many of the figures have inhumanly large eyes painted on, an effect we much appreciate (so Lemmon, please don't change anything).
