What a fab photo. Is this a statue or one of those living statues in Covent Garden? And how on earth is it balanced?
It's one of those living ones and we couldn't work it out at all!
Omg that's a living statue?? That's very clever!
Wow that's amazing, I can't look at it too long or my head will pop trying to work out how he's doing it! Fab pic :D
Thank you. They do make your eyes boggle!
Spotted this guys too on my wander through Covent Garden the day after the MADS - but ................. I am seriously tempted to apply for one of the jobs being advertised on the hoarding over his shoulder LOL
Yes i agree!
Very clever! My boys love to see these street artists in covent garden and down the embankment too :)
We'd never seen them - they're fascinating!
I know how it's done but I won't spoil it by saying. (you can tweet @midlifesinglem if you want to know). Great photo. You'd think the old geezer could smile a bit!
I LOVE those sort of things - often see them in Covent Garden - is that where this is taken?We also saw some the day we went to Brighton.Would simply LOVE to know what he is sitting on.Liska x
Yes there were a few in CG. Not seen them in Brighton and am there regularly. Whereabouts were / are they? X
I mean artists - not necessarily the one you have pictured.They are right on the seafront.You can see two of them in our daytrip video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dSItjr71xro&feature=plcpSo how is your one doing that? Did you work out the secret of what he is sitting on?Liska x
He must be on a pole of some sort I think!
wow that is clever!!
Isn't it just?
Awesome shot. Great pose.
You can see the silver pole in the shot, but not when you're there!
I love those guys! Bizarre but cool in an uncool way :)
I love those guys! Very cool
Yes - cool but spooky really!
Love covent garden
what a balancing trick :0)
wow that man must have thighs of steel to do that!
He's definitely sat on something 'coz he was so relaxed!
I've always wanted to go up to these living statue dudes and give them a big tickle.
Well you would!
I would imagine there is a metal (slim) pole which travels up his leg, turns 90 degrees at his kneen and supports his bum with a flat piece of metal.It's all going on inside the trousers seat and support-wise.
You can see a little silver thing by his bum!
I don't know how he gets into it, has he got velcro quick release up the side of his trousers? And some long-johns to preserve his modesty?Do they wheel some curtains round him on wheels, like A & E?
He kind of looks like Robin Williams! Great pic! :)
Yes he does! I hadn't noticed that.
How? Just how?
That's what made me put this up!
I can't even begin to work that out....... Just amazing :-)
It makes your legs ache just looking!
Great statue and great photo.
He was alive and seemingly not sitting on anything! Thank you!
He really was x
how does he do that?but more importantly - a great big Michael Kors shop opening soon.....
We wondered that the whole time and I agree - more importantly - Michael Kors! X
What a fab picture. I do however find these guys a little creepy though x
Thank you. Yes, they are X
