The Russian city of Sochi hosts a regular statue standing competition that could only be described as epic. The contest is comprised of living statues vying for sightseers' attention (and money).

There is no actual prize in this competition, but participants see who can be more interactive and eye-catching to attract interest. I think I'll put my money on the blue little girl with the pigtails and the pooch.

Implications - Although, it really is hard to pick just one statue from this competition. Try looking through the collection of photos and selecting your favorite -- I assure you it is no easy task!
