Over various lengths of time (i.e. 10 mins., 30 mins., 50 mins.), I place nearly fifty kippot* on my head, one after the other. I sit still for over forty minutes holding the stack of hats on my head. This action transforms me into a live sculpture, gradually altering my posture due to the hats' weight.
