20 Wooden Sculptures That Are So Realistic They’ll Leave Everyone With Goosebumps


Christopher David White Ceramics

“I saw the image in a piece of material, and then I just set it free.” This is how many famous sculptors describe their work. Sometimes their creations are so uncannily realistic that you might feel a little scared looking at them, yet you’re unable to drag your gaze away.

In 2013, this sculpture made its way into the Guinness World Records as the longest wooden sculpture. Chinese artist Zheng Chunhui transformed the trunk of a dead tree into a sculpture measuring 12 meters (40 feet) long, 3 meters (10 feet) high, and 2.5 meters (8 feet) wide.

The carving is based on the famous painting Along the River During the Qingming Festival (1085-1145), which portrays the daily life of people and the landscape of the city of Bianjing (today’s Kaifeng). The sculptor converted it all into wood to the finest detail. Check it out for yourselves:
