Russian Live Statues

You've probably seen from time to time those people who pretend to be a statue standing on the streets somewhere in downtown in summer time, freaking out the passers by, earning some spare coins. Now all of those came to Russian city Sochi to participate in Living Statues contest.

    The colour is the key.

    • liberal says:

      Your statement is racist according to scot.

      Repeat after me,

      Everyone is equal
      There is no such thing as color
      Race is a social construct
      Obama is the second Christ

      • Nine GERMANY says:

        >>Race is a social construct

        same for gender, don’t forget that

        • Ole says:

          Oxford English Dictionary:
          gender (n.) Grammatical classification of objects roughly corresponding to the two sexes and sexlessness (Masculine, Feminine, and Neuter).

          It is a gramatical construct. The word for describing people is “sex”. I know many young people nowadays use the word gender instead but that is just lack of eduction although it is certainly humerous.

          Apart from that, I agree with you. :)

      • so_what says:

        You took it the wrong way. Ole meant the paint you freshman whistleblower. The color of the skin isn’t even observable.
        But your right – keep your eyes open ! ;-)

        so_what

      • scot says:

        Yawn…

    • yeah the paint colour is key.

      • Nad iz ukraina says:

        Erm,are u being funny or what miss india?
        i think russia fares better off in economy compared to,ermmm ur country for example? hehe no offense,but this kind of thing is considered art here. And ps: u can see this living statues all over europe,i’ve seen some in barcelona and even in wien(vienna)

    • Miss India says:

      OMG russians are so poor they can’t even afford to make their statues out of metal and stone like the rest of the world. they have to make them out of living people!!! sad really. :(

  2. Nine GERMNAY says:

    Those are terrible. I’ve seen way better in Berlin

    • scot says:

      Some of them are quite good – and you know it! Change the record, please.

      It is, indeed, all down to how well they do patina and colour. It must take ages to do – but surely the money can’t be all that good?

    • Boris Abramov says:

      …no contest with Barcelona, but nice nevertheless.

    • so_what says:

      Wenn Du schon so arrogant daherkommen musst, dann lass wenigstens unseren falsch geschriebenen Ländernamen weg. Du machst uns ja sonst Schande!

      • Nine GERMANY says:

        OMG that’s just a typo. There, I’ve fixed it, better?
        Also, write in english, otherwise it looks like you are afraid that everyone will know what you said (just like russians often do when they cuss other users of this site in russian)

        • scot says:

          She’s even spelt her own name Nina incorrectly….

          • Nine GERMANY says:

            >In which case, Catherine, why do you sometimes post as “Nina Germany”? I doubt you’ll answer that one.

            First- not all post signed by my nick were written by me- maybe some impostor got it wrong. Second- I’ve posted once or twice from my friends laptop, which has some kind of spell checker thingy, maybe that changed my name. Or maybe that was a typo. Who cares? If you put so much emphasis on wheter I’ve mispelled something or not, then you obviously have no other good arguments.

            >>Furthermore, I think you’ll find that I said that current events in the banking system were not capitalism. And that those PARTICULAR EVENTS had more to do with socialism than capitalism… perhaps a bit too subtle for you?

            LOL, either you’re a liar or you don’t even remember what you said:

            Me:
            So USA is now a socialist country?

            You
            >>>Yes,it is!<<>>Don’t you watch the news you dingaling!!<<<

            Also, you stated that “capitalism fell”, meaning capitalism as a system.

            But please go on, continue making a fool of yourself.

        • Nad iz ukraina says:

          true true
          just like the japanese …
          and why must the follow the rule of the world,they have their own language and handwriting

    • Nine GERMANY says:

      Really my immaturity is boundless. I guess it’s because i’m over weight and live in sad America trailer park. :-(

  3. lol says:

    Notice the statue holding the baby is flipping off the cameraman for trying to take an upskirt photo.

  4. Harry says:

    who won?

  5. another russian says:

    My vote is for number 6 (after brief text), silver lady.

  6. amerikanyetz says:

    No topless statues?

    BOO.

  7. Maddcowe says:

    Number 23/24 is the winner, hands down. The woman in number 49 does not seem too receptive to the upskirt photo op. Too bad.

  8. Necromas says:

    I like the first blue girl the best.

  9. ballsack says:

    Very nice!

    Imagine walking into an abandoned cathedral with all these statues in there, and after having a look around they all start to move and come at you like zombies.

    AAaaaaahhhhh!!!

    Anyway, they should judge the winner by whichever one can remain in character while they are banged in the ass.

    Some of these statues are grope worthy.
