May Theme Day - Statues

First of the month brings us the dailyphoto community's theme day, with this month being statues.
London has so many to choose from. I have chosen to show you one that is here temporarily.

This incredibly life like statue is one of the three statues created by sculpture Christian Jankowski of people performing statues. This one is Salvador Dali's Anthropomorphic Cabinet Woman.
So... is this art imitating life, imitating art or is it life imitating art, imitating life or..what do you think?

This is so beautiful. Marvellous patina and lovely photo. A deep question and I've got a migraine...

Enjoyable! The angle of the shot adds interest.

For whatever reason, I really love this picture. I think it's the color of the sky...

Can't decide, but I like your choice.

this is a really beautiful sculpture!

Yes! Amazingly alive statue...stunning catch. But my attention is definitely drawn by the sky, more than by the beautiful work of art. I choose the beauty of the sky between the two.

I'd go share her umbrella with her if it were raining! Nice statue for theme day!

LOL! That is such a funny and strange concept for an exhibit. I think I would have liked seeing the living statues that he based his statues on.

This one is lovely. She's also perfectly equipped for walking around in our summer weather. ;)

I, quite simply, like it and the way you framed it!

"is this art imitating life, imitating art or is it life imitating art, imitating life or.."

Regardless of the answer, you've posted a very interesting entry for the meme!

The light coming from the right side makes it very interesting.
