Incredibly Realistic Wood Sculptures Of People Hand-Carved By Peter Demetz

1
Italian artist Peter Demetz has a gift for breathing life into wood, a material that seems hard and lifeless to most of us. His wooden sculptures of people are flawlessly life-like. Demetz’s precise and perfect mastery of human anatomy makes his sculptures look like paintings or sketches, and his wonderful compositions and sense of perspective help perpetuate this illusion. The grain of the wood and its warm colors, however, give them a tactile appearance that would be difficult to fake with paint.

Han Xiao was born in LiaoNing, a province of China located in the northeast of the country. Her work is intense trying to identify the loneliness and the anxiety each person feels in some periods of life. She told a parabola about the bamboo tree that grows in Eastern China, “Even if a farmer takes care of the bamboo plant, it will only grow three cm in four years after the seeds germinate. However, five years later, the growth rate of bamboo can be 30 cm per day. It can grow up to 15 meters!”. This is true and applies to any discipline, to any person. Enjoy.

1

Here, visitors are encouraged to interact and have fun with the art pieces, taking as many photos as they want. “Art paintings are not complete if you are not with them, if you don’t take pictures with them,” Blyth Cambaya, the museum’s secretary.

The museum is filled with unique paintings that, when photographed from a certain angle, create optical illusions that make it seem like you’re, for example, stepping out of the painting or being attacked by it.
