If you happen to be shopping at the Oxford branch of the British supermarket chain Sainsbury's anytime soon, you might come across a display featuring DVD's of "12 Years a Slave" -- and an accompanying mannequin dressed up like the film's main character, Solomon Northup:

For reasons unknown, an Oxford branch of the supermarket embellished its DVD and Blu-ray stand for Steve McQueen's film about the horrors of slavery with a mannequin wearing a similar outfit to that of protagonist Solomon Northup.

Looking defiantly summer-ready, the mannequin wears a loose-fitting, holey beige shirt and black trousers, completing the look with a twig in the front pocket.

Backed by spindly branches and standing next to a plaque that shouts 'NEW', it wears a tag around its neck bearing the price of the recently-released DVD, suggesting the clothes themselves aren't for sale, though the juxtaposition is a strange one nonetheless.
