Sculptor Ron Mueck takes the art of sculpting to a whole new level with his incredibly realistic sculptures of human beings. If it weren't for the disorienting sizes of his sculptures and the snapshots taken of the artist completing his pieces of art, it would easily have you believing that these sculptures are in fact real people.
From the facial expressions down to the skin texture, every minute detail is taken into account to ensure that it looks as real as possible. Every wrinkle, each crooked smile and thumb imprint is accounted for. As was also mentioned previously, he also very much enjoys playing with scales as most of his pieces are either dwarf-sized or giant-sized. What truly makes these sculptures believable is that he plays with people's imperfections, thereby giving each a distinct character. Unsurprisingly, Ron Mueck has now garnered world renowned fame for his incredible statues, which he will hopefully continue to keep making.
