Human Statues at La Rambla: Hypnotic Cleopatra

Human Statues at La Rambla: Hypnotic Cleopatra

Las Ramblas of Barcelona, that multicolor promenade full of art nouveau architecture, museums, souvenir shops, hotels, people and even caged animals and flowers is also a big showcase for artists, street artists, talented and anonymous, who have given a new style to one of the main arteries in the city. Some try to regulate their activity or even ban it laying obstacles in the way. 

I just can't imagine La Rambla without human statues like this Cleopatra enduring for hours in straining postures and under tons of makeup. Help art and do not strangle it. Save your laws for pickpockets and similar scoundrel procreating in Las Ramblas.

    This is an interesting photograph. It looks almost like a statue.

    I would think that this bronze makeup would be a real mess to put on and even worse to clean up!
