Marc Quinn at the Oceanographic Museum - Zombie Boy (Rick)
This piece is called Zombie Boy (Rick) Cu Pb NnFe Mg Si. It's made of orbital-sanded flap-wheeled lacquered bronze and was created in 2011.
Just click on either photo to see the detail which is extraordinary. As I walked past Zombie Boy I felt his eyes following me - in fact I had the strong feeling that perhaps he wasn't a sculpture at all but one of those street people who don't move and then suddenly spring to life.
He is astonishingly beautiful.
Thanks to Philippe who informed me that Zombie Boy is a real person, with real tattoos - do take a look at the link.
