A sculpture exhibit set to open Tuesday is receiving lots of attention in Paris. 

The sculptures are disturbingly life-like, but larger than life-size.  They are the works of Ron Mueck, an Australian artist known for representing people and animals in relentlessly accurate detail.  The larger-than-life "Couple Under An Umbrella" features an elderly couple.  If you look closely, you can see every hair and vein of both people.  They're 12 feet tall. 

Other works include "Woman With Shopping," "Mask II" and "Young Couple."
