    A 10-foot-tall woman is among the statues coming to Times Square as part of a new art installation.

    Five large and whimsical sculptures are coming to Times Square as part of a weeklong public art installation.

    The Times Square Alliance is slated to unveil the five artists' works in Duffy Square Tuesday morning.

    The outdoor exhibition features a bronze mouse; a voluptuous female figure made of ceramic tiles and glass pebbles; an illuminated sculpture of bubbling sea foam; and a work made of compact discs and resin meant to evoke an ancient monument.

    All the structures are about 10-feet tall.

    Another highlight is Counting Sheep, a 36-foot long installation of 24 handmade paper sheep.

    The art project marks the start of Armory Arts Week, which features arts events throughout New York City.

    The sculptures are scheduled to remain on display through next Monday.
