Disturbingly Real Sculptures

Jill Harness

What's bothering this man so much? Maybe it's the fact that he's not real. To make matters worse, he seems to have launched over the uncanny valley and doesn't have the weird inhuman features we've come to expect from artistic representations of ourselves.

He is a creation of Jamie Salmon, who is one of eight artists mentioned in this round-up of the most hyper-realistic sculptors in the world. While all of the artists are incredible, it seems Jamie can't seem to make a human figure that doesn't look like it's about to strike up a conversation with you.
