Great Weekend Part Two

On Sunday, we went to GOMA (the Gallery of Modern Art) at Southbank to see the Ron Mueck exhibition. If you get a chance to go, GO. It was fabulous, but make sure you see the film in the resource room, opposite the entrance to the sculptures.
It explains how the sculptures are made.
I tried to get people in the photos to show the scale.
This guy from the front was ... let's just say confronting. LOL
They are incredibly life-like in everything but the scale. The skin tone, blemishes, hair placement, wrinkles, etc. I could go on for ages. Do go if you have the opportunity.
After this, DH and I wandered through Southbbank, had a nice lunch at a Japanese restaurant, and a Swiss ice cream for dessert.
All in all a very pleasant way to spend a Sunday.

Take care everyone,
