Alone in the museum

Due to the virus, Greek museums have been closed for almost a month.

In these empty museums, what do the statues do? Do they come off their pedestals and lead their own secret lives, away from prying eyes?

Or do they huddle together for comfort, contemplating the sunset, like these two?
