There is a mime in Disneyworld in Orlando Florida dressed up as a classic Greek status and he/she wears a mask that looks like a statue and dressed all in white like this performer. They are quite amazing to watch. Its even more fun when someone poses in front of them for a picture and the mime changes position unknown to the person in front of them and puts on a funny pose to make fun of the person being photographed. The crowd gets a laugh all the time. #3189173

Hi Wayne, you are absolutely right - it is fun to observe the mimes. This one also posed with tourists. Pl watch for more of this series - I also captured two mimes when they were on their "break" and just relaxed and talking to each other.
Fun project.
