Impersonating a terracotta warrior

The story that came out yesterday about a German art student who pretended to be one of the terracotta warriors in Xian, China reminded me of a time many years ago when I went to Madame Tussaud's with my father. We descended to the Chamber of Horrors, where my father went into a dark corner and stood there motionless, staring ahead of him. He was a tall dark man, wearing a hat and holding a furled umbrella.

Before long a small group of visitors stood in front of him, peering at his feet as they looked in vain for a plaque explaining who he was. At that moment he suddenly walked away, pursued by horrified screams.
