Jaw-dropping Hyperrealistic Wood Sculptures By Bruno Walpoth

Bruno Walpoth has just made wood come alive. 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. This is how Bruno put it “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.” He adds however, that wood is “very hard to work with,” and it takes a “great delicacy” to make the material “appear like skin.” He says it takes him about two months to complete a life-sized figure.
