This statue of a gigantic scared naked man has been on display in the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, Qld, Australia. The artist is Ron Mueck, and Australian, now London-based, who presents people in various physical and emotional states, sometimes colossal, sometimes miniature. The work is amazing for the realism.

I am a keen amateur photographer (progressing from a Brownie Box to digital) who loves to combine travel and photography. I have travelled extensively in Australia and New Zealand with other trips to parts of UK & Europe, USA, Africa, Scandinavia and Canada. My photography reflects my interest in culture, scenery and wildlife relating to these travels.

    Congratulations Margaret from the hosts of The 200-499 viewings group.

    Excellent shot and a great title Margaret!

  • Hi Maggie, It’s always an honour to be featured. I just loved the stance on the couple considering their position in front of the nude statue. Ron Mueck’s work is outstanding.

    What a wonderful find – this is excellent

  • Hi Karlaryder, Thank you for your comment. The whole exhibition was superb and when you were able to see video of how Mueck started from the idea to the end result and the detailed attention he gave to everything it was just amazing – even down to putting each hair in place individually – he did have assistants.
