It may be hard to believe, but these mindblowing sculptures aren’t real people, they’re actually the work of one incredibly talented artist.

The unsettling and yet captivating statues are the work of Ron Mueck, an Australian sculptor, who – after a career building animatronics for TV and film – rose to prominence in the late 90s when he took part in the exhibition ‘Sensation’ at the Royal Academy in 1997.

During ‘Sensation’ he debuted the mixed media sculpture Dead Dad which he described as a disconcerting rendition of his own deceased father, half life-size and made entirely from memory.

To make the incredibly detailed statues Mueck sculpts in clay, makes a plaster mould around it and then finally replaces the clay with a mixture of fibreglass, silicone and resin.
