Ron Mueck: perhaps the greatest sculptor of our time!

Ron Mueck is an Australian "hyper-realistic" sculptor that has created some of the finest pieces of sculpture of our time. Mueck implements techniques that are absolutely unheard of outside of the hyper-realistic field of art! Meuck uses actual human hair in his creations but, mostly, he creates the majority of his artwork using fiberglass and rubber (polymerized); often glazed with elastic paints. Here at theorderoftheironphoenix.com, we really appreciate art! In fact sculpture is a sort of passion of ours. Surprising, we never heard of Mueck until recently! His work stunned us (in a good way). We were so intrigued by this sculptor that we created a video in his honorable commemoration. Enjoy! We really just want to share with his greatness with our audience. The following video is indeed just a compilation of some of his work  (there are a few pieces that are not his, see comments below).

Well simply because this will result in a new revolution in the music industry! As you may remember, only 30 years ago, you would need a band to perform a simple piece of music. Then, the keyboard was invented (the minimoog), which made one instrument able to synthesize the sounds of other instruments. This in turn increased the popularity of the piano as opposed to any other instrument (save the resurgence of the guitar in the 20th century).   This killed a few instrument altogether such as windpipes , bagpipes and accordions. Although these instruments are stunningly beautiful, they where far too complicated for the modern man to learn, the synthesizer on the other hand...
