Mary Leu’s Ultra Detailed Wood Sculptures

The appearance of wrinkly laundry hanging on a clothesline leaves the distinct impression of soft fabrics. But these are, in fact, stunningly detailed wood creations by Taiwanese sculptor Mary Leu (呂美麗).

Leu painstakingly carves and chisels every wrinkle and fabric texture in a single block of wood to create incredibly realistic everyday object.  Even without staining or painting, the sculptures can easily be mistaken for the real thing. The level of craftsmanship and minuscule detail involved is breathtaking upon closer inspection.
