What if directors actually looked like the characters in their films?

One of the things I like about the internet is the fact that it provides an endless showcase for the most incredible corners of human creativity. Like, for example, these quirky wooden sculptures by Seattle-based artist Mike Leavitt.

For his latest series, King Cuts, Mike transforms some of the most renowned filmmakers into satirical sculptures. They're on view at the Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York until June 11, consists of 16 new hand-carved sculptures of directors like Tim Burton, Alfred Hitchcock, Steven Spielberg and Quentin Tarantino.

The artist fused Burton with three of the filmmaker's works; Batman, Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands, while Hitchcock is transformed into one of his own attacking birds.

Watch the making of the Tarantino sculpture below. You can also follow Mike on Instagram to see his work in progress.
