Artist Tom Eckert creates deceptively realistic sculptures made entirely from wood. Eckert carves his work first, puts it all together, laminates it and then paints it. These interesting sculptures are made from woods like limewood, basswood and linden.

Many of his intriguing works include cloths draped over other household items such as books, cards and cups. The cloths look so realistic that it’s hard to believe they've been whittled from wood. By tossing these elegantly crafted wooden cloths over top of the other items in his sculptures, the artist creates a sense of mystery.

Tom Eckert's sculptures mess with the viewer’s perception of reality. He basically proves that your eyes can lie to you. You may be convinced that you’re looking at a book covered by a soft white cloth, but that’s far from the truth. Stats for Deceptively Realistic Wooden Sculptures Trending: Older & Average
