Since the advent of the smartphone with cameras, nearly everyone in the world has become an expert at taking the perfect photos and selfies. Although we can all take photos, that doesn’t mean we are all great photographers.

Reddit

In fact, most of us have to do the same poses over and over because we just aren’t that creative. But hey, if it works, it works. Let’s take a look at some of the most fun poses with sculptures we’ve found on the internet and social media.

The Most Helpful Little Man Ever

This photo of a little boy who seems to be helping a rabbit up with his brothers and sisters is the most adorable photo ever, isn’t it? This little man just wants to be of service and help in whatever way he can. We love that about him.

The little boy seems to really think he’s helping a brother out, and we are so happy his parents (or grandparents) were able to capture this photo. His family will cherish and remember it forever.

Let's Have a Shave, Shall We?

This beautiful sculpture shows what looks to be a man who is possibly bathing. Back when this model posed for this sculpture, there probably weren’t disposable razors available, so the razor makes this even more interesting.

Have you ever wondered what people did for shaving back in the day? We know that men shaved, but women didn’t shave their armpits until recent decades. After all, how would they even do it? This is a hilarious prop for an old sculpture.

This Tornado Is Blowing Us Away!

This statue in Salt Lake City depicts a mother playing with her little girl by swinging her around. Or it could be a photo of a mother trying to keep her daughter from blowing away in a tornado. At any rate, that’s how the photo posers made it look when they grabbed on!

The helpers appear to be holding onto the little girl in an effort to help everyone from blowing away. So nice of them to drop in.

Because Clowns Are Terrifying, Right?

Did you know that the fear of clowns is actually a real phobia? That’s right. Coulrophobia is a debilitating fear of clowns. The fear of clowns is usually tied to a traumatizing event in a person’s past, and it is a powerful thing.

People who suffer from the fear of clowns have trouble maintaining calm when there are clowns around. It also doesn’t help if they reach out and slap you, of course, like this sculpture seems to be doing to this clever poser.

Can We Have a Showing of All the Single Ladies?

This sculpture was completed long before Queen Bey (Beyoncé) was even born, but the pose is just beautiful, even if it was a man. The man is standing with his head looking down, and wow, is he ever ripped! Look at that six-pack.

The woman stepping in and making this a feminist pose with their “Single Ladies” stance really brings life to an old sculpture. And these days, a lot of women have six-packs, too. Surely this statue is where Beyoncé got the idea for her video.

Hey, Dinosaur, You Shall Not Pass

This snowman will without a doubt melt in the following days since it looks like the snow in the area is rapidly fading away, but that’s not stopping the snow-knight from asserting his power while he still has it. He’s holding up his sword and shield and trying his best to keep this terrifying prehistoric creature at bay.

We have to admire this snowman’s tenacity and courage. After all, the dinosaur (or whatever it is) could slice right through him with one big bite with those huge teeth.

The Expression on This Guy's Face. That Is All.

This man appears to be held hostage by this cute little cupid. It’s almost like the cupid is saying, “Give me back my bow and arrow or I will punch you out, dude!” Cupids are adorable, but it’s not a good idea to cross them, it seems.

We love this photo not just because it has an adorable baby cupid statue, but also because the expression on the man’s face is absolutely perfect for the photo he’s trying to pull off!

Shall We Dance?

In this list, we have included some funny sculpture poses and some sweet sculpture poses, but this is perhaps the most adorable. The little girl appears to be joining a line of children who are following a lady playing the violin.

The children appear to be dancing, but this little girl looks like she is cutting in to ask the little boy sculpture to join her in a private dance. This is so adorable we can barely stand it!

Grab the Goods and Run!

We aren’t sure where this unique sculpture is, but it’s gorgeous, isn’t it? It appears to be a woman hugging a man and saying either hello to welcome him home or goodbye to bid him farewell. We know this because the suitcase is beside them on the ground.

This hilarious and creative poser appears to be trying to snatch the suitcase, making this one of the funniest sculpture poses on our list. He will need to make a run for it, though, but he won’t have trouble outrunning the lady in high heels.

Did Ben Franklin Secretly Invent the SmartPhone?

Ben Franklin is an early American who was one smart dude! Not only was he America’s first postmaster, but he was also one of the architects of our democracy, a writer, and a prolific inventor.

For one thing, he was the first man that we know of to harness the power of electricity, and he invented the bifocals, among other things. He was also known for having a super sharp and witty sense of humor, so he would have no doubt loved the irony of this hilarious photo.

Gimme a Kiss, Fellow

Could this be any more adorable? This little girl walked right up to a sculpture of a little boy and gave him a big old kiss right on the lips. These types of photos are all over the internet and they’re one of the things that make the internet such an amazing tool.

After all, if a tool like the internet can’t provide us with some cuteness now and again, what good is it? We love this cute little pair.

No, She's MINE!

This statue is apparently one that people love to pose with as we featured it before with the group of people who looked like they were trying to keep mama from flying away. However, in this post with this unique sculpture, the man appears to be trying to take the little girl for himself.

What’s happening with this pose? We may never know what scene the poser was attempting to create, but it’s still an interesting and creative pose nevertheless.

King Kong, but Grizzly Bear Version

One of the most iconic movie scenes of all time is when King Kong picks up the lady and gently cradles her as she trembles in fear. In this image, a clever lady riding a bicycle decided to recreate that scene with this sculpture of a mama grizzly bear.

It can be interpreted in a few different ways. For one, maybe the bear grabbed up the lady for dinner for her and her cubs. On the other hand, maybe she’s helping her get back onto her bicycle.

Please Won't You Reconsider?

What did this guy do wrong that he’s having to fervently apologize for? This lady looks angry, for sure! Most likely, the lady is staring out to sea waiting for a beloved sailor to return home. Many sailors never made it back and many ladies spent their lives waiting for them.

However, this man in the yellow shirt sure did a great job of lightening up the beautiful sculpture. It has turned a perfect green patina with age, making us think it was made from copper.

This One Was Probably Very Difficult

When it comes to getting the perfect shot, timing is everything. We have a feeling it took several tries to get this perfect shot. The sculpture is located in Niigata City, Japan, and it celebrates a character named Taro Yamada from Dokaben, a popular manga comic.

The lady is jumping up in the air and throwing some papers up. It looks like the man with the bat struck her with his swing and caused her to jump up and drop all her papers.

Hey, Spidey, You're Not So Tough!

Spiderman is a tough dude and a true superhero. The great thing about him is that he’s just a teenager who loves science and technology and tries to use his newfound powers to fight evil. But is he a match for the average man?

We love this sculpture that shows an average man who has caught Spiderman himself. What did Spidey do to make him mad? Not sure, but it’s a beautiful sculpture, isn’t it? The bronze guy looks seriously mad.

Hey, Egg, Let Go of Me!

Most people like eggs in one form or another, whether it’s scrambled eggs, sunny-side-up eggs, or in an omelet. But what would happen if eggs could actually take a bit out of us? This funny post tackles this dilemma head-on (or foot on, as the case may be).

We don’t know where this unusual egg sculpture is, but it’s a weird one, for sure! This lady got super creative when she decided to lie down and stick her leg in the egghead’s mouth.

Kid, You're Coming With Me

Is this Ronald Regan? It looks like the former actor turned president. However, it could also be just any random businessman in a suit. It’s not clear where this sculpture is located, but it seems to be in a park or a parking lot somewhere. It’s an unusual place for a sculpture.

However, it’s really cool how this kid got the idea to lie down and make it seem like the man in the sculpture was dragging him. It’s almost like an errant kiddo being taken home.

Don't Ask Me!

The ancient man in this sculpture looks like he is in a museum somewhere. Judging from his hair, maybe he’s a sculpture from Ancient Greece, but it’s difficult to say. Regardless, he looks like he’s standing up lecturing someone. Maybe he’s giving a speech.

Advertisement

However, the way this lady posed for her iconic photo makes it look like the man in the sculpture is saying “How would I know???”. This is definitely one of the most creative uses of a sculpture.

Wanna See Pics of My Kids?

This is a gorgeous sculpture of someone who looks to be meditating or in prayer. Maybe he’s reading or just contemplating the meaning of life. However, one thing is certain: whenever he actually lived, he probably didn’t have a smartphone.

Source: Rold RamCab

Imagine if he did. What sort of photos would he have on it? Would he be playing Words with Friends or perhaps using the Headspace app to meditate? The guy in the photo is showing him something. Let’s assume it’s pics of his kids or a kitten video.

Save Me From the Giant Pigeon

Keeping pigeons (also called pigeon husbandry) is a popular activity among men in California, so this huge pigeon sculpture may be there. At any rate, this is one big bird, for sure. Maybe it’s going to be part of a movie. It certainly makes The Birds have a new meaning.

However, the way this person is posed makes it look like the pigeon is about to enjoy a yummy lunch of a person in a yellow shirt. That’s a lot of food for mama pigeon and her babies.

Knocking Out the Gangsters

Something that makes this sculpture of two men interesting is that it shows two men who are quite rotund. You don’t usually see photos of fat guys. More typically, the people who modeled for ancient sculptures were god-like models with curly hair and a six-pack.

Advertisement

So we’re not sure what this sculpture conveys. Is it gangsters? The guys look kinda secretive. Whatever they’re up to, the young man on top is obviously knocking them out. So if they’re bad guys, they’re being dealt some justice.

Can You Hear Me Now?

We don’t know what the lady is doing in this sculpture. Maybe combing her hair? Or just pushing her hair out of her face. Whatever she’s up to, she’s absolutely breathtaking and elegant. The man seems to be whispering sweet nothings into her ear.

What do you imagine he’s saying to her? Is he telling her she’s beautiful or suggesting she cover herself up? Whatever it is, we hope he gets his point across because he seems very sincere and genuine.

Kiss Me, Handsome

What’s going on here, 50 Shades of Bronze? Whatever it is, we love it. The young woman took advantage of the pose that the sculpture is in to lay back and pretend to be getting a kiss from the bronze man. But there is a more pressing question.

Advertisement

Source: imgur.com

What is the sculpture supposed to be symbolizing? It’s almost as if the man is giving an invisible woman a kiss, or maybe he was put there for the purpose that he’s being used in this way. Also, what is he wearing?

Let Me Give You a Lift

These young ladies weren’t deliberately posing with this sculpture, but someone captured a cool moment perfectly. The sculpture shows an ancient warrior seated with his spear in the ground. His arm is thrown over the back of the chair.

However, what makes it so perfect is the women walking by in the background. We always wonder if people who are accidentally caught in photos like this ever end up seeing the photos. Do they even know they went viral? It’s fun to think about.

Ouch, That Got Me Right in the Gut!

This is the same sculpture in Japan that we showed another person posing with. Apparently, this is a very popular sculpture to take photos with and there are countless ways to make them funny and cool. When you can capture a memory like this from a museum or place you visit, it helps you to remember the occasion forever.

Reddit

Now seeing this, we’re ready to take a trip to Japan so that we can create our own memories with this beautiful sculpture as well. How would you pose with this character in the middle of his baseball swing?

Excuse Me, Can I Cut in Line?

We also already featured this sculpture of a lady playing the violin and being followed by several children. However, it seems that there are endless ways to be creative with your children with this sculpture. In this pose, the little boy just got himself in line right behind the little girl.

It makes us wonder more about this sculpture. Why is there a break in the line? What does that symbolize? This would be another interesting sculpture to visit (and pose with, of course).

Off You Go, Dude!

This guy looks like he’s about to dive in. Maybe this is a sculpture of a famous diver, although they’re not usually naked (famous divers, that is). Or is it a sculpture of someone who is just jumping off the bridge? Either way, it’s probably something with a historical significance.

However, the lady kicking him obviously has some serious martial arts skills, or else she’s just very limber. Regardless, this is a super creative pose. It would be tempting to visit this sculpture and try some more creative poses.

I'm Lovin' It?

Ronald McDonald is one of the most enduring icons of advertisement, marketing, and fast food in the world. When a brand can make a part of their advertising a beloved character in any country, they’re doing something right. McDonald’s is famous for unhealthy fast food (they’re trying to do better) but they’re also known as a place that kids love.

Advertisement

Reddit

A lot of that has to do with Ronald McDonald and how much he is loved by kids and adults alike. This guy decided to have some fun with this Ronald McDonald figure and we’re loving it.

Kickin’ It

We get it, The Leaning Tower of Pisa is not a statue, but come on, the creativity that seems to take people over when they hit this historical landmark is worth dedicating some slides too. We’re wondering how many takes this perfectly timed photo took, but the result was definitely worth it.

Advertisement

Reddit

Just look at this photo. The girl at the top of this stunt has her foot just so that it looks like she’s slowly kicking over The Leaning Tower of Pisa. We can’t help but wonder if these lovely ladies may have been traveling abroad as part of a cheerleading trip.

Did This Man Trip This Little Girl? Rude!

In some of these funny sculpture poses, we have to wonder how the people posing got their ideas. This one is very unique and unusual and this guy had a lot of fun with it. The children seem to be playing some version of ring-around-the-rosy, although, like many of these sculptures, there is probably a historical significance.

Maybe the boys are pulling the other children along to save them from some evil, which is a common theme in memorial sculptures. The man tripping the little girl looks mean but it was done in good fun.

Attack on Titan in Japan

In Japan, Universal Studios constructed this sculpture that serves as an Attack on Titan experience. This allows people who visit the area to have all types of fun with this sculpture. You can imagine just how much fun it is to crawl into the big guy’s mouth or do what these ladies did, and pose in his hand.

Reddit

This photo looks a bit like a nightmare and it’s possible these women had some bad dreams about being eaten by this monster. It’s so silly and funny.

Can You Pick My Nose for Me, Please?

Now, this is an interesting sculpture. It looks like the bust of a man is sitting there with his finger pointing as if he’s delivering a speech. What’s going on in this guy’s mind, and what did the artist have in mind? It’s hard to say without knowing where it is and what the sculpture signifies.

Advertisement

Reddit

However, what we do know is that the guy in the photo is very silly and probably an all-around fun guy. It looks like the sculpture is picking his nose. He could have handed him a tissue.

Oh, no! He's being taken!

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, wait…no, it really is a bird! A big bird at that. This statue is a larger than life bald eagle and this passerby was ready to pose.

Reddit

This pose is perfect and makes the man look like he’s seconds away from becoming bird food. How would you pose with this statue?

So Uncalled For

Some people are just so quick to anger. This lady looks like she came out on the wrong end of an argument with this statue.

Advertisement

Reddit

I’m sure this woman was just approaching with some helpful tips and tricks on how to properly hold a fruit basket, when BAM. Slap to the face. Some people just prefer to hold their fruit baskets by the fruit I guess.

I Would Like A Large Cone Please

You better believe we are going to continue to bring you some of the creative poses we’ve found with The Leaning Tower Of Pisa. Some of these are just too good to pass up.

This picture is a prime example! Simple, but very cute. We love the creativity that went into this picture. It looks like it could be straight out of a travel magazine. Is The Leaning Tower Of Pisa one of Baskin Robbin’s 31 flavors?

Everyone's A Winner

The Miss America Pageant is in Atlantic City only once a year, but now visitors to the seaside resort- where the historic Miss America Pageant began- can now have their own crowning moment year-round!

The bronze statue of Miss America is modeled loosely on former title holder Mallory Hagan but also  incorporates features from other past winners. The Boardwalk statue depicts Miss America holding out the crown for a new winner to wear. We love a statue that allows everyone to have their moment in the winner’s circle.

Go Fish

This is one we have yet to come across thus far. Imagine this, the table is set, the mood is right, it’s game time! You sit down for a fun game of cards just in time to look up from your perfect hand and you are greeted with an eye full of skeletons.

Tumblr

Do you make the best of it or run away screaming? This guy decided to make the best of it and stuck around for what we are sure was a memorable game of cards. Serious question though. Do you think skeletons cheat?
