28 Historical Figures’ Faces Realistically Reimagined

People who are famous are known all over the world. Their appearances, their information, and so on are mostly known by the public and their fans. Even though people know a great deal about modern-day celebrities and other famous people, you won’t get much to be found on the people who live in ancient times, when the camera was not even invented.

Most of these historically famous people are imagined by the drawings and the descriptions that were documented in those ages. With modern technology evolving and developing day by day, a creative artist Bas Uterwijk from the Netherlands has tried new methods in reimagining these historical figures.

Uterwijk is a talented digital artist who handles digital photo manipulations pretty well. He has already constructed many historical figures by digital photo manipulation before, and these are some of his latest collections.

He refuses to stick with building these figures by being 100% artificial. So he incorporates photography and digital editing to create the figure that he wants to present to the world. This talented artist explains to Bored Panda during his interview, that humans look alike throughout history. Make-up, fashion, and other things that were practiced during certain periods were the factors that made people look different from one another. So this made it easy for Uterwijk to transform the models into the historical figures that he wanted to create.

If you are interested in famous historical figures, this will be very exciting for you.
