Trompe L’Oeil Threads

Would you believe it if I told you these articles of clothing were actually made of wood? Get ready to have your mind blown. Artist Ron Isaacs constructs these vintage clothing and plant material reliefs out of Finnish birch plywood and then finishes them with acrylic paint. How he is able to give such a hard material so much soft and natural movement is beyond me. Honestly, amazing!
