People imitating statues has almost become standard practice in photographs from vacations, study abroad programs, and trips within the states. Although I understand its appeal, (I mean, who doesn't want to pretend that they are immortalized in bronze?) I fail to see the humor. Which reminds me of a Seinfeld quote:
Kramer: Anyway, it's been two years. I mean isn't there like statue of limitations on that?
Jerry: Statute of limitations. It's not a statue.
Kramer: No, statue.
Jerry: Fine, it's a sculpture of limitations.
Kramer: Just wait a minute...Elaine, Elaine! Now you're smart, is it statue or statute of limitations?
Kramer: Oh, I really think you're wrong.
Well my statue of limitations has to deal with all these people taking pictures in front of statues and imitating them! Everywhere I look, be it Facebook, Myspace, Flicker—people are raising their fist in defiance or pretending to ride horses.
After I did a little searching I found this blog: Stand by Your Statue. This man has actually been traveling around the world for six years, all the while finding statues to imitate. Bless his heart, but damn his infernal perpetuation of this crisis! Look, I'm all for giving people a glance into the wealth of beautiful statues in this world, but somehow I feel the significance falls flat when someone is imitating sometimes such great works of art with rich cultural history. The onlycomical photo I have seen is shown above, which is brilliant for obvious reasons.
