Dipping in Hyper-Realistic Art

Woah Woah Woah.

These are powerful art. Remember when you were small and your atok and nenek (and other grandparents' titles yang sewaktu dengannya) would discourage you from keeping life like toys/dolls at the fear of having souls trapped in them when you're sleeping? They didn't? Okay, maybe just my atok and nenek then.

Anyway... these life like sculptures by Ron Mueck are said to be so realistic that they still look the real thing irregardless of how many times you look at them. That kinda makes him an expert at soul catching then right now. *Ponders. Creepy? Check. Jaw dropping? Check. Ugly? Kinda. Check. Beautiful? Kinda, I think. Check. It it Art? Check at your own will, loves.
