These People Look Real but Then I Took a Closer Look. OMG, I’m Completely Speechless!

Human sculptures generally always resemble the people they were modeled after but London artist Ron Mueck’s sculptures are so realistic, you would swear they were real. What makes his sculptures even more impressive is that he plays with the scale of them so they might be incredibly small or some of them might be as tall as one or two stories high.

Using materials such as fiberglass, resin, and silicone, he creates lifelike sculptures of humans at various stages in the life cycle whether it is childbirth, middle-age, or even seniors. He began his career working on models in movies but starting in 1996, he began focusing on creating hyper realistic sculptures that amaze people throughout the world.
