To non-magical individuals, the statue would appear as any ordinary statue, but when a magical individual was near, the statue would become animated, providing entrance to Paris' counterpart of Diagon Alley. The statue came to life when approached by wizards and witches — the statue would move its leg and dress away from the pedestal it was set on, opening the passage.
Behind the scenes
- The statue is based on a real world statue named Pythia, sculpted by Swiss artist Marcello, located in the Paris Opera.
- Pythia, also known as the Oracle of Delphi, is a representation of the Delphi pythoness.
