    Muscle power or trick, OR both?

    Fascinating photo. That seat doesn’t look very comfortable. I would give them both a nice donation. :)

      No idea how they do it, but it is fascinating, and absolutely worthy of a good tip! :)

    I know how that works! :D U can see the wooden thing going into the guy’s sweater… we have a guy who does that here in Vienna too. Nevertheless, it’s a much more entertaining way of making a living than sitting on the street with a paper cup. Nice picture :-)

      It must still take quite a bit of strength and balance?

      • tinasrabbithole December 21, 2012 at 6:50 am #

        Strenght, yes. Balance, not so much.. there is one big plate under the bum/legs of the dude that is sitting in the air (covered by himself and some cloth) and one biiig plate under the carpet that the dude is sitting on, to keep the fixture in place. BUT. It sure can’t be comfortable to sit that way for hours…..!

        Strength, yes. Balance, not so much..The guy underneath only has to cover the joint of the bamboo fixture. It goes into his shirt, and down inside his shirt, so you can see he is sitting with his legs around the wood (well, you can’t see it well, so he’s doing a great job). So he actually isn’t supporting the other person’s weight at all. there is one big plate under the bum/legs of the dude that is sitting in the air (covered by himself and some cloth) and one biiig plate under the carpet that the dude is sitting on, to keep the fixture in place. BUT. It sure can’t be comfortable to sit that way for hours…..! So, respect.

    Of all places, Italy! A well-shot photograph of a great feat of strength, concentration and nerve. Thanks for posting such interesting subjects! Merry Christmas.
