Contemplation

but by who ?

 

The giant in question is the subject of hyper-realist sculptor Ron Mueck's In Bed. A middle-aged woman lies gazing into the distance. Her expression is one of slight anxiety.

 

While his work is lifelike, it is not life-size, being either bigger or smaller than the subject. In earlier years he mostly used fibreglass, while recently he has been working with silicone as it allows greater flexibility for shaping body parts and implanting hair.
