Ok, not really water, but one of Ron Mueck’s works on the gallery wall early this year. It was a fantastic show.

Here are more of his masterpieces from the exhibition:

I must admit that Ron Mueck’s work scares me a bit... I have seen it before... eek!

Fascinating.

My watery photos are shrimp boats coming in and a sailboat going out. Do stop by if you get a chance.

Interesting how the arms are flinging out in the same way in the first two photos! Like Linda said, it is a bit creepy. But I like the second shot, it really does look like he's in a pool somewhere :D

Hey, ni hao! Is that Victoria as in British Columbia... or as in in London... as or in Australia? Super realism - in painting or sculpture - always jolts me. I suppose that is the intention. I like the top metal sculpt with the glass fountain, though.

@ Francisca: Ahh, this is in Melbourne, Australia. Thanks for the question, I must remember to be clear about this next time :).

Yes, I do like the metal sculpture too and fountain, which are permanent displays/designs at the gallery.

@linda: I can see why it might be creepy. I wouldn't like to be alone with them, but it was ok in the gallery.

@Kaori: Good point about the first and second photo. I hadn't noticed!

Dear Evelyn,
...me, too, I have the same feeling as Linda has. Anyway, thank you for the info.
Kind regards, Sadami

The top image of the sculpture with the water flowing behind it is lovely.
