Living Statues

Living statues are mimes who stand perfectly still for hours on end, pretending to be statues. They are sometimes painted with a metallic sheen or another color so that they appear to have been cast from metal or carved from stone. Often, they are so still that bystanders believe they are actual statues and—as has been shown on many a hidden-camera television show—create quite a commotion among startled onlookers if they disrupt the illusion by moving.

Living Statues
These talented performing artists have amazed crowds outdoors at street festivals and fairs as well as indoors at parties, conferences, conventions and more. The performer creates the illusion of absolute stillness while posing. Oftentimes passers-by do not realize the performer is a real person, which causes surprise when the "statue" gives them a small gesture, such as a wink or a nod.

Living statue performers can fool passersby, and a number of hidden camera shows on television have used living statues to startle people.

Don't get the attraction of this at all.
Yes, its skilful to keep still. And a surprise when they move if you didn't realise. But so what? Why should anybody care? To me it seems pointless.

Happily, they are not prone to the acts of vandalism.
In Dublin, here is a sculpture of Luke Kelly on Sheriff Street which may have to be moved if vandalism continues. Also, it might have to be somehow complicated monitoring the potential act of vandalism directed towards the living statues. Forget about reflecting on moving the living statue.
