    Woah, they look so real.

    If my brother ever put one of those in my room,
    I`d probably die of a heart attack.

    The exhibit was in my town 2 years ago. It was really neat! A bunch of school girls thought my mom was one of the sculptures, and when she moved they all started screaming.

    I`ve always liked Duane Hanson, super realism or hyper realism is impressive.

    I think I saw one of these sculptures behind glass at an airport. Everyone was looking at it and someone said:
    "no way. There has got to be a man sitting there."
    And someone replied "But look how stiff he is. Every strand of hair is perfectly still!"
    And all of us were about 7 feet away from the sculpture!

    I find it funny how the posts below turned into a debate on american obesity.

    #6 Paul: "Why don’t you make some hot bitches instead of all these fatties."

    #7 Adam G: "Everyone is fat.
    F*ck us.
    Seriously, we need to stop eating.
    Look at how we are viewed?
    It’s disgusting."

    Hahaha

    These statues remind me of ones in a Ripley`s Believe It Or Not museum in St. Augustine, FL. You were in this room, and as you walk out of it, there`s a lady pointing a camera at a man next to the door. I stepped back after noticing them and nothing happened for a while. They were statues... Fooled me. So I stood a bit down that door to watch other peoples` reactions to the statues. It was quite hilarious.

    So why does the black woman get a name like Queenie... and Queenie II, where`s Queenie I? And she is the only one with a name.
