The Super Devoted Guard

There was this guard who stood in one place by the entrance of where the HLAA convention was held. He was completely still and I swore he was asleep, but his eyes were open. I did not really look at him, I did not want to stare. He stood there for a really long time. A few hours would pass when I would leave to get lunch and he was still there standing. What a boring job.

I never noticed that he was standing behind these ropes, as if he was an art exhibit. After a few more times passing the guard (after hours each time) I realized that he was a fake.

I believe this piece is by a Milwaukee-based artist, Marc Sijan. His figures look so real. They are incredible. I would like one for my house, to keep the burglars away. 



  1. That's awesome! I want to stick him in the front of the library and see how many double takes he gets!

  2. Wow ! That is so spooky, but I am willing to bet my guide dog Sissi would have clicked right away. Regards, Judith

  3. LOL I saw that and did a double-take and then I realized it was fake. Good for a laugh!

  4. That guard was creepy. If you're getting one for your home's protection, make sure he's good looking!!!

  5. haha, There is a wax museum near where I live and when I was a girl, I thought the wax version of they had Abraham Lincoln was real (it was my first wax person I viewed) and it freaked me out! To make matter worst, they added a special effect to make him look like he was talking.

    I believe there is a movie called Wax Museum.


Keep it civil.
