At the point when Tyrion Lannister was sixteen years of age, he met a stranded wheelwright's little girl out and about, obviously the casualty of an endeavored assault. While his sibling, Jaime, rode off after the assailants, Tyrion helped Tysha recuperate from the experience, and they got to be mates. They discovered a tipsy septon ready to wed them in return for an influence and quickly, they existed as spouse and wife for two weeks, until Tyrion's father Lord Tywinlearned what had happened when the septon let him know after he had calmed down. Jaime admitted that he sorted out the occurrence to do something pleasant for his younger sibling, and Tysha was really a whore.

Jaime thought it was time that Tyrion engaged in sexual relations with a young lady, and paid Tysha and the would-be rapers to imagine it was genuine so Tyrion would think a young lady truly needed to have intercourse with him without needing to pay for it. Then again, Jaime did not suspect that Tyrion would wed the young lady, nor what their father's response would be to that. In a wrath that his child would set out to wed an average citizen, Tywin had his gatekeepers group assault Tysha whilst Tyrion was compelled to watch. Tywin snidely had the gatekeepers pay Tysha by dropping a silver coin in her grasp for each one man who took her. Before the end, there were such a variety of silver coins that the heap was slipping out of her hand and coins were moving along the floor. She was then sent on her way, and Tyrion never knew about her again.

Mannequins were a frequent motif in the works many early 20th-century artists, notably the Metaphysical painters Giorgio de Chirico, Alberto Savinio, and Carlo Carrà. Shop windows displaying mannequins were a frequent photographic subject for Eugene Atget. Mannequins are a common theme in horror fiction. Many people find mannequins disturbing (due in part perhaps to the uncanny valley effect), especially when not fully assembled. Abandoned nuclear test sites consisting of entire towns populated by mannequins appear in such films as Kalifornia, Mulholland Falls, and the 2006 remake of The Hills Have Eyes.

The first fashion mannequins, made of papier-mâché, were made in France in the mid-19th century.

Mannequins were later made of wax to produce a more lifelike appearance. In the 1920s, wax was supplanted by a more durable composite made with plaster.

Some modern mannequins are made of molded plastic. Mannequins are used extensively for the display of clothing in stores and in shop windows, and as decoration.

A mannequin (also called a dummy, lay figure or dress form) is an often articulated doll used by artists, tailors, dressmakers, and others especially to display or fit clothing. During the 1950s, mannequins were also used in nuclear tests to help illustrate the effects of nuclear weapons on human beings. The term is also used for life-sized dolls with simulated airways used in the teaching of first aid, CPR, and advanced airway management skills such as tracheal intubation and for human figures used in computer simulation to model the behaviour of the human body. Mannequin is also used in English in the sense of fashion model.

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 mannekijn, meaning "little man, figurine".
