Incredibly Realistic Sculptures Of People Who Lived Thousands Of Years Ago By Oscar Nilsson

Oscar Nilsson is a Swedish sculptor and archaeologist who specializes in reconstructing faces. In one of his recent projects, he used his skills to hand-sculpt the faces of a handful of people who lived hundreds, some even thousands, of years ago using their excavated bones as a reference, giving us a unique glimpse of how those people might have looked like.

The remains of this Wari woman, nicknamed Huarmey Queen, were discovered by Polish archeologists in the north-west of Peru back in 2012 along with 57 other noblewomen.

Oscar opened a company called O.D. Nilssons in the mid-90s that collaborates with various museums to help restore the faces of people whose remains were discovered during archaeological excavations. The artist says the human face and all of its details never ceases to fascinate him.
