Artist Kazuhiro Tsuji seemingly brought the famed Abraham Lincoln back to life with his 'Portrait of Lincoln.' The presidential bust was built to mimic Lincoln exactly down to the last pore. A special effects artist, Tsuji used his unique skill set to create a hyperrealistic bust. Pictures of the sculpture are almost indistinguishable from pictures of the original man.

The surreal sculpture was partially dressed in Lincoln's signature garb. Tsuji adorned the upper half of the bust with a well-tailored suit and a silk bow tie to keep the reanimated president looking fresh.

Portrait of Lincoln is currently on display at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation & Library. Part of the 'Life and Times of Abraham Lincoln' exhibit, the sculpture was placed there after being shown at a previous art exhibition.
