Russia's Live Statues Contest

Freeze!!!
These are pictures of contestants participating in a living statues contest held in the Russian city of Sochi. Imagine having to maintain the same pose for hours at a time! An occasional sudden movement would definitely scare an unsuspecting passer by.

Thank you so much for this post! I am going to have to share it with my group of bloggers who are/have adopted from Russia! Hope it's okay - I'll surely give you the credit!

We saw a number of these around Paris. They were really cool. I was staring at one and it suddenly winked at me! :)

The lady holding the baby??? Is the baby a doll? I would hope so!

Too cool!

Becca said...

Those are really cool. I cannot imagine standing in those poses for that long!

WOW that is amazing how cool. They had one guy like that in Mexico when we were there.
The one had the eyes closed I'd certainly fall over!

How great! Gee I bet that centurion would have had sore arms by the end of the day!!

We have these guys all over the French Quarter in New Orleans. If you're not paying attention, you'd pass them by thinking it was a real statue. Of course the catch is they jump out to 'scare' you and want $5!!
