London-based artist Ron Mueck makes extremely realistic sculptures of human figures. The sculptures are painstakingly crafted primarily out of silicone, polyester resin, fiberglass and synthetic hair. They very widely in scale, from miniature, to life-size, to enormous sculptures that depict only a portion of the body. To see how he makes his sculptures, take a look at these behind-the-scenes photos by Gautier Deblonde.

Mueck’s work will be on display at two upcoming exhibitions: “Lifelike,” a group show at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, March 1 to May 27, 2013, and a solo exhibition at Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris, April 16 to September 29, 2013.
