yeah, hyper-realistic sculpture has being going on since at least the 1970's, it followed the trend with photorealistic paintings actually- all part of the same movement. Except it's a little easier since you can use actual casts if you want to improve the likeness.

This artist's thing isn't just the realism though. It's the distortion and mutation aspect. I think that's the main thing, not the realism at all.

That is amazing. I'd love to be able to see those in person

Unfortunately no… The stuff has always been advertised a lot here, so a lot's been written about it and I've read a lot.
-Though I didn't even realise she was Aussie, I thought she was British. She's a very good at what she does, her human-animal hybrid creations get a lot of attention!

Whoah, these are both awesome and freaky at the same time. I feel like I should look away but I just can't…

I went to a Photo-realism show in the Museum of the Philadelphia School of fine art back in 1982. There was a hyper realistic sculpture of a nude that even had goose pimples. You could just feel the cold. I've never forgotten that sculpture.
One well known sculpture was also in the show with the multiple figures waiting for the bus with the park bench. A sculpture you could sit in.

I saw one last year in Museum of the Philadelphia School of Fine art where it was a hyper realistic self-portrait sculpture …but decapitated with the head at the figure's feet.

I've always had a strong reaction and fascination towards sculptures in marble or clay. If I'd see those in real, I'd probably stare at them for hours. Amazing work, I especially like the ones that are totally humanoïds.

I saw a pregnant woman like this. It was really cool.
