I have just heard about the Sydney Statues Project. Unfortunately, it is over but you can go to Flickr and see some of the fabulous work. It looks like it was very hard work, measuring the statues, working out how to make the clothes look like they had been fitted when the arms, legs, etc cannot be moved. Then the making and the actual fitting. The pictures are great.
My sister heard about it on National Radio, the By Design program and you can download a podcast of the show.
