“Statues En Marche”: A Fascinating Gathering Of Living Statues In Belgium

Belgian city of Marche-en-Famenne hosted the most fascinating annual event on July: the largest gathering of living statues in Europe. This free street festival can be decribed as the most fascinating outdoors museum, with the sculptures being replaced by men and women posing as statues in the pedestrian part of the town centre.

Living statues are a common sight in many city centers, but it is rare to see such a diverse range of this peculiar form of street art for which performers must keep still for painfully long periods of time to create the desired illusion.
