Thanks! I hope more people post photos from the show. A lot of people took personal pics with the statue after the show on their way out.

It looks like I'm not the only one his has had problems with photography due to that damn reflective mud. Maybe somebody with an awesome camera got a good color shot.

I was watching jaynestown today, and I noticed the body of the statue looks like it is just a costume that's been painted to look like stone. At least the pants. you can tell when they pan down the first time they show the whole thing.

Was working on posting a screencap, but it got to the end where Jayne pushes the statue over. It doesn't really show the legs, but the torso sure doesn't look like a painted jacket...

Of course, you could still paint a jacket and pants for a display.

The funny thing is that it appears so light, and so rigid when it falls down and rolls over...almost like it's a fiberglass mold.

I'm sure the easiest and quickest way they could have made it was to use the stunt clothes that Shawna provided Almost Human and then dress a dummy and spray it somehow...but that would have some weight to it.

If you look at the green statue photo at the beginning of this thread you can get a look at the jacket and a bit of the pants and tee shirt. The hands are definitely weird- like someone filled a surgical glove to make a hand...

Yes! I've been talking with Christopher ever since he posted that yesterday. I'm so excited to learn more info about the construction.

After 10 years of searching, it's pretty darn exciting to see brand new 360-degree photo views! This will definitely help with the rebuild.
