Stock Poses is a meta-trope of memorable individual poses for humans, animals, or a human-animal combinations like a rider on a rearing horse. These poses may have a notably recent origin, like Charlie's Angels for the Angels Pose, or they may be iconic poses from famous works of art like Pietà Plagiarism.
