This tastefully decorated home is located here in town a mile or two from my place.
I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that the owner of this house is not married...
I wonder if the idea behind this is similar to using wooden decoys when duck hunting? Throw a couple of decoys in the water, real ducks fly over, see them, land next to them, and BOOM! Perhaps the home owner is hoping that a decoy female displayed on his roof will attract any flocks of supermodels that happen to be strolling by.
It's interesting to note that this is not an ordinary mannequin. It appears to have been specially sculpted into a "Slave Princess Leia lying in submission at Jabba's feet" pose. I had no idea they made such things.
If you look closely you can also see what appears to be silver duct tape around the mannequin's ankles, which is presumably holding her fast to the roof. Unfortunately the tape looks a little too much like shackles.
I drove past it last December and the owner had put a scarf and wool cap on her for winter.
