Almost Human Hyperrealistic Wood Sculptures (sort of NSFW)


o-BRUNO-WALPOTH-900

Artist Bruno Walpoth can practically turn wood into flesh.

The Italian artist has a knack for creating haunting, incredibly lifelike sculptures hewn out of wood. His works somehow manage to capture the expressiveness in a person’s eyes and the body’s fleshy curves.

According to Walpoth, wood basically runs in his veins. “In our valley there is a 400-year-old tradition of wood-sculpting culture,” he wrote in German. “Both my grandfather and my uncle were wood sculptors, and so I grew up with this medium.”
