People working as human statues were really common in Madrid, Spain when we lived there, and we saw several in Paris last year. I never see them around Albuquerque. I think it only works well in big cities and busy tourist places. I don’t go to Santa Fe enough to notice if there are any human statues working the plaza.

I have often seen people dressed up as living statues in near vicinities of malls and bazaar streets……so they are not that rare.

Now there are a lot of beggars on street corners round downtown and several of the on and off ramps for I-25 and I-40. LikeLike It is sometimes fun to spot the living statues……. a moment different than the most days passed in mundane…. LikeLike I have seen statue models and I’m awed how hard that is for how many hours in a day. I found this video profound and unexpectedly moving. Thank you. LikeLike Reply You are Welcome…..
