Nirvana “In Utero” Tour Prop Stage Mannequins “Mankin”

Nirvana “In Utero” tour photos are always instantly recognizable because of the angel wing mannequins on stage behind the band.  The mannequins were inspired from the “transparent anatomical mankin” on the cover of the In Utero” album.  Some of the best photos of Kurt Cobain playing live on that tour have these mankins with angel wings in the background.  Here are a few of our favorites we came across…

As they did often with their musical equipment the mannequins were abused and beat up on-stage as well.

The mannequins and several other Nirvana related items are on display at an exhibition, called Nirvana: Taking Punk To The Masses” at the Experience Music Project in Seattle, Washington.

This particular mankin is the one directly behind Cobain in most of the photos.

It is also the same one that Kurt had this cool moment with for this photo.
