In the words of '68 The Outsider's song 'Bend me, shape me, anyway you want me" The perfect lyric for the poseable paper character. So it is that I'm experimenting with a joint to join hips and body together. Such a joint needs to be able to bend side to side and back to front and perhaps even allow the body to rotate. That's two, perhaps three axis of rotation.   

I constructed this centre block using the same rotary joints as featured in the stick-man model. By adding the joints to two faces I add an extra axis of rotation. Left/right and front/back

…now I just need to add rotation.
