Are you real?

Van gogh statue

My Wife sniggered at me, bursting into fits of laughter as I stood in front of a statue waiting for him to move. I will forgive you dear reader for thinking me insane. After all statues don’t move, they are generally speaking, inanimate. However a remote corner of my grey matter was convinced this fella was “real”!

Well in fact, he is not a real person but a very cleverly constructed mannequin, I guess is the best way of describing him. Whoever had made this statue, had constructed it using a real coat, gloves, hat and all around a man made skeleton. This made it look real, as we always expect to see a statue made of stone.

Other people were fooled too! Honest, not just me!
