Sunday’s Travel Photos – Madrid: Bronze Statues


When we arrived at our home exchange flat in Madrid, the first thing we saw was an extremely realistic bronze lamp lighter. During our visit, we found four other bronze statues of the same kind plus a “fake” one in the form of a “living statue”. It was amusing to see how people would give them a friendly pat on the back as they went past.

    Wow. How long did the fake statue hold that pose for?!

      All the statues held the poses for an incredibly long time, but they often had a prop to help that you could see if you really looked for it. This one has some sort of stick on a stand under his trousers’ leg.
