If you are to tell me that the people in the above pictures weren’t real, I’d laugh in your face. The truth of it is, though, they’re not. 

They are creations of a London artist named Ron Mueck, who specializes in sculptures. He used to be a model maker and puppeteer for television and films (e.g. He created Ludo the gentle giant in the movie 'Labyrinth'). 

Now, he focuses on making hyper-realistic and detailed sculptures of humans that have museum visitors studying them and even staring for hours. 

And the marking of a pile of exam scripts and moderating another pile are finally completed for this semester, at least! It was less painful than in previous semesters but these tasks can be a real drudgery.  Anyway, all in a day's work for a university lecturer!
