Double-Double - Lay Your Head Down

Horsemaning was a popular way to pose in a photograph in the 1920s.
It derives its name from the Headless Horseman, an evil character from Washington Irving's short story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow".
The objective of horsemaning is to make it appear that the photo’s subject has been beheaded. Horsemaning requires two individuals, one situated with one's head hidden with the other hiding his or her body and exposing only his or her head.
The resulting photo appears to show a headless body with a disembodied head lying beside it.
