The beauty of the deformed human body:

In earlier times the freak show was a popular and legitimate form of entertainment. Today we tend to be more considerate about it but the monstrosities of the deformed head or body still draw our attention. Our hunger for the macabre hasn’t changed a bit. 

I wanted to be honest and put them back on display in a carousel, because we do want to gaze at them.
