It's as if you're standing in Ancient Williamsburg.
It's safe to say that artist Leo Caillard was putting hipster clothes on classic statues before it was cool. That's because it remains to be seen whether an ancient sculpture wearing skinny jeans will ever be considered cool. But it's certainly interesting, in a "why the hell would someone do that?" kind of way.
Caillard created the art by taking photos of sculptures at the Louvre then adding the modern clothing using photoshop. Even if his work is never fully embraced by the art world, he clearly has what it takes to land a retouching gig at UrbanOutfitters.com.
