Antique find? No, a sculpture by Michael Lee at The Art Spirit Gallery

You won't believe your eyes. Artist Michael Lee's unique sculptures look so real, you'll think you are in an antique shop rather than an art gallery. A former LA County fireman, Lee took a beginning ceramics class in which students could sculpt anything they wanted to. Lee chose a WWII vintage US Army canteen with a canvas cover, which was his first attempt at hyper-realistic sculpture, called 'Trompe l'oeil sculpture' which means 'to fool the eye.' He entered the canteen in the Orange County juried art show where it won first place.

Michael Lee's sculptures can be seen at The Art Spirit Gallery at 415 Sherman in downtown Coeur d'Alene.
