Great art !!! When you go to Europe you see this genre of art all over : actors standing motionless ( on the street, at the beach ,etc) - sometimes depicting a " moment", other times a "work of art" like this - but always giving those passing by cause to STOP and PONDER a bit.

Munch might not have screamed at this sight, but he might have rolled over in his grave.

Unless he's got some sign out saying what he's trying to portray, I wonder how many of those passerby's knew what he was going for?

These street performers are overrated. The only ones worse are those jugglers.

Nice idea, but why isn't he wearing anything on top? The chap in the actual picture is dressed in black.

I have seen Taro perform all around Tokyo a few times. In his performance, he uses signs and other props for all his portrayals of world-famous artwork. He is, indeed, 'The Living Museum of Art'!

Wow, I wonder how long he held that pose?
