I mean, really, all they do is cover themselves in paint and stand still and people pay them! I could do that outside the pub!

Correct --- probably too easy -- but he sure scares the heck out of unsuspecting passersby when he reaches out to shake hands.

Living statues? Has anyone walked through Trafalgar Square recently? I do so once a month for a nautical reunion and the first time I saw them about 3, maybe 4, years ago I thought they were quite good but now when walking from one side towards Pall Mall there must be about ten of them and they are now just more tourist tat. I suppose the response is 'got to earn a living somehow' and if people want to put money in the box then that is their choice. Not mine though.

I saw some "living statues" in San Sebastian, and one of them was portraying the Statue of Liberty. She looked very authentic with very green make - up. All was going well until a young boy crept up behind her and pinched her bum.

Cueball44,

Yes correct - The Clay workers. Sorry to hear they had been vandalized.

More about the theft/damage of the statues here:

https://www.wheal-martyn.com/2017/04...geted-thieves/

There is a slight connection between these statues and 'living statues' - In both cases real clothing treated to remain rigid has been used.

2. Where is it and who's house is it.

Also still no answer to photo 1. in post 142.

Can't do anything with the old one...but have been there on both the new ones:-
The Hunter is at the entrance to RAF Valley on Anglesey.
The House is Sandringham and HM The Queen wasn't in residence when the picture was taken.
