Ron Mueck's hyper-realistic sculptures
Ron Mueck is an Australian hyper-realist sculptor who makes sculptures that faithfully reproduce minute details of the human body, but plays with scale to make them visually jarring. Check out this gallery in the Washington Post and try not to be amazed. It's what would happen if Michelangelo and Jim Henson each took a hit of acid and then joined forces. And by 'joined forces' I mean made sweet tender love to each other. Because that's how sculptures are made, my friend. Through the magic of sexual intercourse.
