Real or Fakir?

When I was in Harrogate yesterday I saw these 2, when I passed them again about an hour later they were still in the same position, it was then I took the pics.


There was definitely a person at each end, they were moving their heads/eyes. No supports I could see.

When I was at the Tate Modern last week I saw Yoda (not my pic). Couldn't see how it was done, either.

I walked past Yoda as he was setting up and walked back about 10 mins later. I wish I had stayed to see how he did it.

All I can think of is that the arms are not the real arms. They are disguising the real support.
The centre line (balance) must be from the upper guy's feet thru' to the lower guy's blanket!

Those red cloaks are disguising metal frameworks / body harnesses.
If you look in the right places online you can find them for sale.

@Shutter, it's for money. The stuff you have wads of,  you should go and throw some at them might make the place look tidier lol Wink
