The apparent wax-figure-like appearance of a security guard at one of China's shopping malls has wowed customers and occasional passersby.
Footage filmed in the city of Xi'an in Shaanxi Province on May 31 shows the 25-year old security guard, Yang Jian, bearing an uncanny resemblance to a wax sculpture as he stands completely still while on duty.
According to local media, Yang admires the... Еще military and has taken on the attitude of a soldier when performing his duties as a security guard. He noted, «I feel like I should be self-disciplined when it comes to the standing posture, especially when I am on duty.»
The guard admitted that he sees people taking pictures of him as «a sort of recognition of my work.»
He added that there are more people watching him at the weekends, which he said «sometimes causes a block-up at the mall.»
One of the customers of the shopping mall, Liang Likun, expressed his admiration for the guard's «attitude to work,» adding that he «looks like a wax sculpture.»
