Not everything is always as it appears to be, right?

Just take a look at the hyper-realistic sculptures below, created with such precision that you can barely distinguish reality from fantasy.

Here is a collection of some of the most impressive masterpieces from the exhibition Hyperrealist Sculpture 1973-2016 at the Museum of Bellas Artes de Bilbao in Spain.

All the ‘people’ in this exhibition were created out of silicone.

One of the most famous sculptures is “Grandmother with her grandson,” by Sam Jinks from Australia.

Jinks worked both as an illustrator as well as a silicone artist within the film industry.

He has become known for his incredibly detailed sculptures of humans, where he works on creating silicone figures of different ages to show how fragile humans can actually be.

American Carole A. Feuerman’s “General’s Twins” is also a masterpiece.

At the beginning of her career, Feuerman often used water as a symbol for the search for inner harmony.

Look at the beautiful, artificial water drops on the model. Impressive!
