Today I am featuring some photos of an amazing model who worked for Anglo-Belgian sculptor Jacques Lalaing in the 1880's. I have a couple dozen photos of this handsome man, but today I'm posting some really difficult poses that I think would be hard to hold. That may be why so many photos were taken . . . Lalaing could have used them to spare the models hours of difficult work. We start with some ropes and pulleys that probably didn't help much, if at all.
