Hyperrealistic Sculptures by Jamie Salmon (6 pics)

Don't be fooled, realistic as he is, he is not real.
" I like to use the human form as a way of exploring the nature of what we consider to be "real" and how we react when our visual perceptions of this reality are challenged. In our modern society we have become obsessed with our outward appearance, and now with modern technology we are able to alter this in almost anyway we desire. How does this outward change affect us and how we are perceived by others? " - Jamie Salmon.

Jamie Salmon is a British born, Vancouver resident, contemporary sculptor. He specialises in photorealistic sculpture, utilizing materials such as silicone rubber, fibre glass, acrylic and human hair. The themes of Salmons works are varied.

It'd be interesting if graves all had sculptures of the person like this as gravestones. It might also be quite creepy...
