It's going to be hard to believe, but these sculptures are all made of wood. There is no cloth...

The sculptor is Tom Eckert. He forms everything out of wood, and then paints them.

Forms carved to suggest cloth recur in many of his pieces.

"Since childhood, I have been curious about and amused by mistaken impressions of reality presented as part of my visual experiences," Eckert says on his website. "One of my earliest recollections, on a car trip, was my perception of the wet, slick highway ahead that turned out to be an illusion, a mirage.  The revelation that I was fooled, visually and intellectually tricked, stuck with me."

And now this "visual deception" is the basis for Eckert's creative direction.

And he is succeeding...

Because I'm trying to see them as wood, but my mind just won't allow it.
