    Peg Top by Hans Bellmer, c. 1937. Oil on canvas. Tate Gallery, London, England.

    From Tate:

    This image relates to a plan for a sculpture, which Bellmer never completed. The peg-top was intended to symbolise a woman turning the heads and hearts of men. Bellmer was interested in ideas of fetishism, drawing out sexual associations between inert objects and the body.
