The Statue that Copies You



The Statue that Copies You

The only moving 'animatronic' statue in London

Location: Sumner Street

Description: In 'Sumner Street' there is a large plinth about 8 feet high with a statue of a man in a black suit with a paint brush in his hand.

This is Londons only moving statue.

Due to the cameras embedded in his torso he will follow your hand movements as you raise or lower your arms.

He is based on the animatronic system. Some times it takes a while but if you persevere he will copy you.
