Watching Brazilian artist Juliana Lepine sculpt an 18 cm/7.5 inch figure of Freddie Mercury is anything but boring.

Boring? No. Slightly unsettling? yes.

The sculpture is so good that she repeatedly dips into the uncanny valley while making it.

But the bit where the head was finished enough to be very lifelike, and then she plops it on a wire frame body, that was just hilarious. Looked like he should be out looking for Sarah Connor.

It was surprising to see that the head starts as a skull, and really weird seeing her cover it in flesh and cut the eye holes out.
