#1 It’s Really Hard to Believe This Grandmother Is a Sculpture:
If you think this is a photo of a grandmother and her grandson, look twice. No, it’s not what it seems. Grandma is not breathing, and the child in her arms is not a being of flesh and blood. These are hyper-realistic sculptures, recreated with meticulous detail to the point where you don’t know if what you see is alive or not. This is certainly one of the most impressive works. The distinctive shine of the newborn’s hair, little fists clenched, the eyelids of the woman and the baby. It’s amazing!
Pay attention to the details of her feet, nails, and wrinkles. It’s incredible. In addition, the expressiveness of her eyes and face left us awestruck. Most people would assume this is a photograph of an old woman. It’s actually not a photograph at all. In fact, she is not a real person even. Museo de Bellas Artes de Bilbao has brought together 35 works by nearly 30 artists from across the world for “Hyperrealist Sculpture,” which combines lifelike with surreal works straight out of the uncanny valley.
