One More... Ron Mueck

I have one more thing to post about and then I suppose I must get ready for work. While I was in Edinburgh, I happened upon a museum that had an exhibition that I had been hearing about for a long time now. I never thought I would ever get the opportunity to see it, but there it was. I was awestruck, and I stood in the line to go see it.








The exhibit is absolutely amazing. The sculptures are so realistic that you start to feel just a little bit guilty for staring at them. It makes you feel as if you are invading their privacy. The sculpture of the couple laying down was only about a foot long, but the details were so wonderful that you could even see that their toenails needed a trim.

I didn't take these pictures, cameras weren't allowed.
