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.
