Art Imitates Life

I just got turned on to this artist whose name is Ron Mueck who is an Australian "hyper-realist" sculptor who is now working in Great Britain. According to Wikipedia, his early career was as a model maker and puppeteer for children's television and films, notably the film Labyrinth, for which he also contributed the voice of Ludo.

These photos I have posted really really do not do this guys work any justice. You can look at better shots here, or check out this video on that was made by some guy in Uruguay but really shows Mueck's work very nicely. And its only 5 minutes long. And the music is cool. You got time. Trust me.
PS: If looking at genetalia is bothersome to you, you might want to avert your eyes.
