Brummieboy....marvelous series on these living sculptures....the first time I ever saw one of these actors was in Boston....when the performer actually moved I was shocked....

Thanks ... the first time I saw them was in Milton Keynes and I have seen occasional ones elsewhere .. but there must have been 20+ every day in Las Ramblas...

They have infinite patience ... I couldn't do it ...

I can't imagine how they can do this, it looks so simple until you try to hold still for any time at all. (like if a fly lands on you!) The paint they wear also makes you itch. These are just wonderful shots, and this man really looks like a statue!!

Marvelous series!! Thank you for sharing!!

I like your series.
It reminds me of the time when my son was little and we used to go to Amstardam behind the Rijksmuseum, there was a living statue standing hight up on some kind of pedestal, done in "bronze". My son would give it a coin and watch it make a bow... then he'd come quickly to me for another coin to give it to watch for another bow... he could do it for an hour, usually when I run out of coins and the actor would not repeat the bow even once :) he loved to come to Amsterdam with me but that would be the only thing he'd wait for :)

How delightful .. and the wonder on his face would have been a joy to behold I'll bet?
