The Standing Woman by sculpture Ron Mueck is of a disproportionally large woman that appears eerily lifelike. She may make you feel a tad disoriented. The Standing Woman is a huge 4 meter-high sculpture of a middle-aged woman dressed in a doughty dress and sensible shoes. From her expression down to her graying hair, this woman must have endured some serious hardships.

The artist is well known in the art scene for creating exact replicas of people with a bit of a twist. From the facial expression down to their clothes, the artist is able to reproduce even the most minute details of the human figure. However, rather then creating models that are of plausible height, he enjoys to play with the sizes by creating either miniature or giant sculptures.
