Hello all,

This message is primarily for Stacy Maxine Armstrong.  Stacy, I have been 
reading some literature on the life and works of German artist Hans Bellmer, 
who is well-known among surrealist circles as the author-father of The Doll. 
  Apparently Bellmer related the notion of the "physical unconscious" to the 
way he structured his dolls, and I recall that you mentioned something about 
the physical unconscious as well in one or a few of your previous posts.  
Are you familiar with the works of Hans Bellmer?  If you are, what are/were 
your main and first reactions to them?
