Aarhus – Aros (Boy)

Still on my blog posts about the Aros gallery in Aarhus, one of their best known displays is known as ‘Boy’. It was created in 1999 by Ron Mueck, an Australian who currently works in the UK.

The sculpture is five metres tall and has been cast in fibre glass to help it make more realistic, which it certainly does. The artist said that he was inspired by how Australian Aborigines sit.
