Means of Transforming the Human Body by the Use of Costume
Sketch by Oskar Schlemmer
Schlemmer believed that costume either expresses the body's nature or makes that law invalid. Of this illustration, he said, "The functional laws of the human body in their relationship to space bring about a typification of the bodily forms: the egg shape of the head, the vase shape of the torso, the club shape of the arm and body, the ball shape of the joints. Result: the marionette."
