Inside Belgium’s city of statues

Reading Time: 3 minutes

A stone gargoyle, a gilded fairy, a cast-bronze king and other fantastical statues came alive in Belgium as street artists showed off their creations at Europe’s biggest “living statue” festival held at Marche-en-Famenne.

Living statues are a common sight in many cities, 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.
