Which one of the statues is a living person ?

 

You know the phenomenon : in cities with many statues and historic buildings, some statues actually live, at least when you give them some change.  A very successful place is between the stonecutters of the cathedral of Antwerp.

The one of today was actually fun ! When money was thrown in his can, he hammered twice with his chisel and that produced a  very clear cheery metal sound.  New passengers looked up.  By that time he was motionless again and the attention was caught.  Which one is the street performer ? Until someone dropped some money and one of the statues smiled, waved or hammered twice.  A good act !

And it is the one on top on the right.  Did you guess it ?

Yep, I guessed. But it wasn't that difficult. A bronze ladder asks for a bronze figure.
The one standing up: looks a bit ambitious for a real live artist. So it had to be the one on the right. Great picture, I like the way you caught the passers by making this a brilliant piece of street photography.
