Living Statue

“I am a living statue

Unable to move

unable to speak

To feel

People walk by

Some look at me

Others are busy with their phones

But no one looks deeper

No one interested in a story

I lost my passion

I have no purpose

I am made of stone

Nothing more than a figure

I am a living statute” LD

How easy is the job of Living Statues?

Living statues are popular in tourist places.

I feel that the living statue job is physically demanding since the muscles of the body get sore and the job is tiring for the persons.

Another hard time is to keep up the posture when people try to distract.

What about the fun part?

But it’s fun to watch when the statue moves or scares the people!

And those who watch these scenes are enthralled!

Do you know that there is the ‘World Living Statues Festival’ celebrated in Arnhem, a city in the Netherlands?

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

    Hahaha, the video made me smile. I also find myself wondering how they keep their position intact despite the sore muscles… maybe there is a masterful art to it all. 🙂

      Thank you my friend.
      They suffer from body pain etc but my guess is they get used to it.
      The fun part of the video is facial expression of the people…as they could never imagine that the statue can move
