Talented sculptor Paul Kaptein creates surreal wooden statues that are guaranteed to captivate art fans. Many of these artworks depict people doing unusual things. Some of Kaptein's pieces incorporate deadly weapons or electronic devices (and these items are typically presented in way that completely bends reality).

Some of these whittled statues have been created in public spaces, while others appear to be in exhibits. One of these artworks depicts a man's upper body. The man appears to be wearing a hooded sweater, but his face has been replaced with a series of guns. This sculpture is basically the literal interpretation of the phrase "if looks could kill". Another of Kaptein's sculptures focuses on a swimmer who appears to be stretching, but has an extra set of arms.

These wooden statues are thought-provoking and visually intringuing.
