The human statue is an NPC who poses like a statue, featured in The Sims 2: Apartment Life and The Sims 4: City Living. They will spawn when the Poised Podium by Performance Arts is placed on a community lot[TS2:AL] and around the districts of San Myshuno.[TS4:CL] Sims can watch or give tip for §1 to the human statue for fun. Occasionally the human statue will change pose. There's a chance they will scare Sims while they're watching the human statues posing.[TS2:AL]
In The Sims 2: Apartment Life, human statues always have the same appearance, even though they're different Sims with different facial structures. They always wear a grey top hat, grey outfits, and cover their face with grey face paint. Human statues are also always elder males. Their outfit can be found in CAS by turning on debugging mode.
In The Sims 4: City Living, human statues wear golden face paint and are dressed either as a golden astronaut or as a golden cowboy. The outfit can be unlocked to a normal Sim by giving a living statue tips. After giving the tips, the outfit is available in Create a Sim and when wearing it Sims can start performing by themselves. When performing, other random Sims will occasionally give tips that are added to the household funds.
