Ginormous Baby Head

Sculpture is not a medium I follow closely, or often get excited about, but the work of Ron Mueck has me thinking I should pay closer attention. Mueck's sculptures are made of fiberglass resin, and appear so life-like, I'm not sure photo-realism is an adequate classifier. His use of scale and subject matter are fantastic, and the work is undeniably first-rate. As an example of scale, the baby head below is 7 feet tall, in other word(s), ginormous.

The first link contains work samples as represented by James Cohen Gallery; the second link contains exhibition photos from the Washington Post, which show viewers interacting with the work (great for scale reference).
