famous people as star wars characters by Michael Leavitt

Had Star Wars taken place on our Earth rather than in a galaxy far, far away, we could imagine several of the characters as being personalities from Earth. Artist Michael Leavitt mashed up Star Wars characters with famous people of earth to create a series of wooden sculptures that seems to be pretty spot on, for the most part. The sculptures are currently on display at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York City.
