If someone can be called the master of wooden sculptures, it is Bruno Walpoth. This Italian sculptor creates sculptures that are so realistic, that if you would see some of those outside the museum context you would take them as real persons. I think it is fair to state that his sculptures look alive.
This is just impressive, check out some pictures of his work below.

It´s truly amazing how he is able to capture the essence of human body and skin, and I also had to take a second look to see if these pants this sculpture is wearing, are real. They are not, they are wooden pants on a wooden human.
