I saw this in more than one occasion during my trips in Europe. People painted in bronze and freezing for hours, imitating statues are now everywhere. Nevertheless, I don't know about the status of those people. Some even says that is in fact a form of begging. In my opinion this is a form of street entertainment and regardless of the scope, they are adding flavour arround city attractions.

I remember one mime dressed in Charlie Chaplin, with his stick, making jokes on people when they were not paying attention. I got busted once when I was concentrating making a picture :) Boy that stick tickles :)
