Meet The Silver Men – Indonesia’s Silver-Painted Beggars

If you saw a silver-painted beggar on the streets, you are likely to be startled but they have become a common sight on the streets of several Indonesian cities.

Known as Manusia Silver or “Silver Men,” they are a special type of beggar inspired by the street performers who used metallic paint to transform themselves into living statues and wow passers-by with their doll-like movements.
These “Silver Men” have become a common sight in the South-East Asian country of Indonesia and the look was adopted not for any special significance or ties to Indonesian culture.
