I thought I was seeing things at first as someone else has just uploaded similar.

All the weight is being carried by a metal plate that's underneath the bit of cloth/carpet that the bottom one is sitting on.

The person at the bottom is holding onto the post and unseen is a bar that runs down the arm and is swxured onto the above mentioned plate

The same applied to the top one and he or she is sitting on a small plate.

The right arms are not real either, they are part of the structure, the real arms are hisdden under the loose clothing.

Well captured.
There was a pair doing the same in Gibraltar when we were there. Nobody there seemed to know how it was done

Personally I don't think it matters how it's done it's a neat idea, and Paul look at the photo's you got!, think about the Indian rope trick where a boy climbs the rope and vanishes! now how is that done!!!!!! three good shots, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
