WHAT IS A ‘LIVING STATUE’
A living statue is a person who poses like a statue or mannequin, with realistic statue-like makeup. It’s an artistic discipline requires mastery of suspended motion. Brief moments of motion are allowed to confuse or astonish the audience. Living Statues have been a form of entertainment for at least a hundred years. Originally a form of circus sideshow, the showman PT Barnum was known to have used them as part of his repertoire of performance curiosities in the 1840s.
