Is He Real?

A few weeks back, I visited the Cantor Arts Center on the Stanford University campus. Inside the museum, I spotted this motionless man in the distance.
I thought he must be very tired or talking on his cell phone although I heard no sound uttered in his direction.

After I few minutes, I slowly approached him from the side for a closer look.
Is he real?

No, "David" is not a living, breathing human being, but he is a realistic life-size sculpture called "Slab Man" by Duane Hanson.
I wonder if the museum has a camera trained on "David" to get a good laugh of all those who come about cautiously.

Click on this photo to read the placard on the wall that is next to the sculpture.

Betchai: I am glad I wasn't the only one who thought so.

Sailor: You fell for the trick too.

Emm: I agree to the point of being scary.

Rainfield61: It won't be the first time.

Lina: Kind of reminds me of the wax museum.
