Statuesque is a 2009 short film written and directed by author Neil Gaiman,it stars Bill Nighy and Amanda Palmer.

A group of living statues that show themselves to the public daily are being ignored. Bill Nighy's character, having nothing else to do, approaches them and one member of the living statues decides to gently stalk him. He doesn't suspect this, although she's hiding in places around him. Finally, she inappropriately reveals herself with a sparkly lit up kitchen. Bill Nighy realizes he's in love with a different statue, so he leaves her, only to take her place as a living statue, to be with the one he loves.

It was commissioned by Sky Television.
