Think about It
Dated 1682, this now rare tin-glazed earthenware figure of Mr. No-Body would have been as easily recognizable in the 17th and 18th centuries as Disney characters are today. He was the star in a popular 17th-century play entitled “No-Body and Some-body.”
Mr. No-Body was just that -- a man without a torso or “body.” Picture YOURSELF without a torso. How would you look? How would you feel?
