Bronze statues have always freaked me out. They have what I like to call “dead eyes,” which refers to how the sculptors hollow out their pupils to make them seem more lifelike. It’s the opposite effect with me.
And when you combine my loathing of bronze statues with the plot of the “Blink” episode of Doctor Who, in which statues (stone angels in the episode, though) come to life to kill you when you look away or close your eyes, my loathing becomes terror.
Lord only knows what this little kid would do to me if given the chance.
