Italian artist Peter Demetz carves realistic human figures out of wood scaled down to less than two-feet, although some of his bigger sculptures stand up to 50 inches tall. Demetz sculpts them with stunning meticulousness, reproducing tiny folds in clothing, facial wrinkles and loose strands of hair. His sculptures are often caught from behind, as if capturing a candid moment from their lives. “No eye contact is ever established with the observer, as if these figures were trapped in their own world, where they seem to be aware of being observed”, writes Woodworking Network.

“The subjects are caught in very singular poses, the men, often bald, strong an big as for the artist these features depict masculinity. The women are accurately represented to the finest detail, accessories, hair and clothing which show a strong femininity.”
