Posed as a statue, this mime was dressed in what looked to be paper mache in front of the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. His garments are somewhat stiff, and he has a flour-like substance on his clothes, face and hands. Even his eyebrows are powdered with something. (Perhaps someone can help identify the technique he used). Category -- Details and Macro.
