These wooden sculptures are so realistic, you’d think they’re living, breathing people

It’s not every day you mistake a piece of wood for a real person, but then again, Italian sculptor Peter Demetz isn’t your ordinary artist. With his mastery of the human form and wood sculpting, Demetz turns timber into life-like sculptures of people.

He includes every bit of detail – strands of hair, folds in the clothing and even wrinkles – to create the perfect collection of illusions.

At first glance, you’d think they’re living, breathing people bathed in paint or clay and asked to stand still, but a closer look reveals their true nature.
