    I know this does not concern miniature sculpture, but it can be appreciated just the same. This is the first time I've seen video of the process used by Mueck to create one of his larger than life sculptures. In addtion to the pregnant woman, other sculptures are shown as well.~Gary

    Thanks for finding that and posting the link Gary, was very curious to see how he worked. Man, can he sculpt or what?! It probably doesn't really get any better than this in terms of realism; I feel like throwing out my putty and giving away my tools...

    The documentary itself is good too, which certainly helps it to be worth watching through.

    Spooky, creepy and totally cool.....

    That is an interesting description. It also points up the success of the artistic vision. This does what all good art should do: it invites us to look outside of our normal mode of experience. It allows us to look at our human-ness as an outsider and detached from our experience of each other as living beings, while pardoxically experiencing that human-ness, intimately.

    Sort of like looking through a window into another reality and discovering that the "other" reality is our own......

    Yep!! Totally cool!

    I found pictures of this piece by Mueck of a couple spooning. I guess he does miniatures after all. Hey, he even owns an opti-visor.~Gary

    ... and there won't be any space left for the rest! :)

    Thanks for posting Gary! Very inspirational indeed. I hope I'll get the chance to see an exhibition by him sometime.

    Best wishes,

    Is it just me, but wouldn't Ron make a great guest speaker at a World Expo or another figure show?
