Daft Punk Unmasked For Incredible Wooden Sculptures

We’re up all night to get lumber.
 
The world might still be largely in the dark as to what robotic duo Daft Punk look like in day-to-day life, but this hasn’t deterred French artist Xavier Veilhan from immortalising the chaps in solid wood without the clunky headgear.
 
As it happens, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (sure, like you knew their real names) were actually the ones who tabled the idea of the impressive human-shaped blocks of wood you can see below, as Veilhan himself explains:
 
“The funny thing is I didn’t even ask them. It was a very logical response to my proposal: I proposed to introduce them as producers, not as musicians, and so after talking to them, we decided that they should appear with their civilian names. They proposed to me: ‘Okay, we should make the sculpture the non-existing image of us. So if somebody wants to see how we are like in real [life] they’ll have to look at the sculpture.’”
 
Nonchalant posing? One seriously popped collar? Wearing sunglasses indoors? They’re probably the most fashionable wooden figures ever created.
 
And talk about chiselled looks.
 
You can see this and more of the artist’s work over at The Creators Project.
