Statues of the Louvre Dressed Up as Modern Day Hipsters

Aug 6, 2012 0 comments

French art director Alexis Persani along with French photographer Leo Caillard has created a series of in vogue sculptures, where using photo manipulation the duo dressed up some of the famous statutes in Louver, Paris, in contemporary clothes.

Caillard photographed the statues and then used his friends as models for cuff jeans, khakis and Ray Bans that the statues would wear. Persani then combined them to create a amusingly natural-looking series. The results are so stunningly realistic that they look as if they were actually dressed up for the session. “Suddenly the way they lounge, look off into the distance and sport those flamboyant moustaches looks all too calculated”, writes Huffington Post.
