Get close, really close.
As you peer into the faces of these men and women, you'll find yourself holding your next breath in anticipation that they take theirs. The longer you look, the more you'll see it.
These models are not people.
They are the incredible, hyper realistic sculptures created by the talented hands of Duane Hanson, Sam Jinks, Paul McCarthy Marc Sijan and John DeAndrea.
Just look at these incredible details: every wrinkle, the expression on the baby's face, the veins on grandmother's hands!

Everything is so realistic! Just look at her feet, the details in the placement of her hands, the texture and colors of her skin tone - not a single detail was missed!

Not even the water is real. The sculptor meticulously blended in her veins, and replicated the effect of pores on her skin.
Can you believe that there are only two humans in this picture?
The man and woman in black are really alive, the rest, are incredible sculptures by Duane Hanson.
