Living Statues Are Coated with Special Paint
Various phases of physical education are symbolized by an athletic group famed for its “statuary” poses. In performances given before audiences throughout the country, the team depicts activities of the physical training division of Springfield College in Massachusetts. Wearing tight-fitting rubber caps and trunks, the men are completely coated with a special aluminum paint and glycerin mixture which gives them a metallic sheen to resemble silvered statues. The paint is not poisonous, and washes off easily with soap and water.
