The Mona Lisa in 3-D
The Dutch artist, Saskia de Boer, makes figures of famous people from foam rubber. There are Marilyn Monroes, Marlene Dietrichs, Botticelli Primaveras and Mona Lisas galore. She is one of the artists described in Udo Kultermann's book New Realism, which has just been published.
