I'm fascinated by the works of sculptor Ron Mueck. His pieces draw you in and you want to see more. Eerily life like, thought provoking, and genius. I would be hard pressed to have to pick a favorite. Wondering just how long a typical piece takes to make. To see more click here.

Ron Mueck (born 1958) is an Australian hyper-realist sculptor working in Great Britain.

Mueck is a is a former television and film model maker with no formal art training. Mueck's 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, and the Jim Henson series The Storyteller. A great source of information of this amazing artist can be easily found at Ron Mueck - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

I agree, brilliant! Some of his works are small and some large, and unless there is something else behind it, it's so hard to tell.
