Old Lady Is Hugging A Baby, But Something Is VERY Wrong.

When you step into the world of London-based sculptor Ron Mueck, you might feel like you've crossed over into the Twilight Zone, and in some ways, you have. The former model maker and puppeteer for TV and movies, has been creating hyperrealistic sculptures for decades. Anyone privileged enough to stand in front of his work of art will feel like they're in "The House Of Wax" or the movie that inspired the series, "Westworld". Using a variety of materials like silicone, fiberglass and resin, Mueck's work captures human likeness to a degree of realism that you have to see to believe.

To call Mueck's sculptures life-like would be a major understatement.

From the long creepy stare, to the bushy long beard, to the hair on it's chest, this work of art needs only to speak.

Mueck loves playing with the the scale of his sculptures.

Back in 2006, a visitor at the National Galleries of Scotland stood beside this work which he called "Wild Man". It's like she took something from a bottle that said "Drink Me" and shrunk.

"Wild Man" doesn't mind being gawked at, even by a bunch of schoolgirls.

In 2010, the clothes-challenged art piece went on display at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne.

Beauty is in this eye of the beholder, especially when you're looking at a giant sculpture of a newborn baby.

It's hard not to be mesmerized by this creepy and amazingly awesome art.

Some spectators even find the work extremely thought provoking.
