A sculptor based in Coruña, Spain seems to be defying the laws of nature with his amazing malleable stone sculptures. His name is José Manuel Castro López's and his works are actually a trick of the eye. They are made out of natural materials like granite and iron oxide, from which he crafts his rock-like formations with folds, wrinkles and flaps as if they were made of clay or skin, as in his "Faces" series where smiling and grimacing human faces are carved out of the solid material. Providing some of the stones' fleshy appearance, one could say they almost appear to be alive.
