Cradling Lady

FOUND by Steve Russell in an alley in Columbus, Ohio

Some weather damage renders the image slightly opaque, but it appears to show a grown woman sucking a pacifier while cradling a rodent. I fear this is a mystery which will never be solved.

    There was a time in the 80s or 90s when the pacifier-sucking rage ran through the hip kids in the area we lived in. Or was it some kind of gang symbolism? Or did the pacifiers come laced with drugs?? I could never figure it out.

    This photo sort of looks like a double exposure, too, but that could be the degradation.

    Maybe the dead rodent is a rabbit baby from that recent Find photo of the two hunters holding the dead parent bunnies.

    There’s been a trend of pacifier-sucking related to the Rave scene. X apparently tends to make people grind their teeth, and the binkie keeps them from doing so. Ovcoarse, this doesn’t even slightly resemble any Rave scene I’ve seen or imagined, and exactly how the rodent figures in.. Well, the Finder is correct: a mystery that will never be solved.
