WOOD YOU BELIEVE IT? STUNNING REALISTIC WOOD SCULPTURES – When you first look at the images below it is hard to believe that all of these, including the cloth, is actually carved from wood.
Professor Tom Eckert, Arizona State, produces what can only be described at the most stunning wood carvings I have ever seen; and I’ve see a lot of art in my time considering I once owned a small art gallery.
While I like paintings for me there is something so pure and magical about sculptures and I think this is due to the fact that they are so tactile.
What truly amazes me is the silk and how realistic it is; it must take a huge amount of patience and dedication to create something so stunningly beautiful and realistic.
Once Tom has finished carving each piece it is then lovingly coated with water based lacquer paints using a small air spray gun and brushes to create a finish that is difficult to tell that it was carved from wood.
I hope you enjoy the stunning wood sculptures below.
