6/26/2004: Boy sculpture



Danish Crown Prince Frederik and his fiancee Mary Donaldson look at the Ron Mueck sculpture 'Boy' at The Aros Art Museum. The Aros Art Museum, situated 200 kilometers (125 miles) northwest of the capital, Copenhagen, was opened Wednesday by Danish Queen Margrethe.

Yeah, it's really a sculpture. Perhaps this picture will aid with your sense of scale.

If your child does not look like this then you have failed as a parent.

I forget where I saw this but I bet that was the model.

Hey, don't they know that the Geneva Convention does not allow prisoners to be kept in prolonged stressful positions!

To the contrary, that's what they should look like when you come home. Well, maybe some welts too.

what kind of point is it trying to prove? I mean, most obscure art has a point to prove.

I vote no sculpture...The eye positions between the two pics are totally different.
(And he should have named it "Tantric Constipation")

This sculpture exists so the artist can prove he can make you do a double-take even though you KNOW it's not a real boy to start with.
