MILWAUKEE Walked into the Milwaukee Bucks practice facility and said hello to the security guard sitting in a metal folding chair in the lobby. Asked him how he was doing. Didn t get a response.

Figured he had dozed off.

After all, the Bucks practice facility is located on the grounds of the Archbishop Cousins Catholic Center in St.

Francis, Wis., south of Milwaukee on the shores of Lake Michigan. How much security do they really need?

I sat down in the lobby and tried to make eye contact. Nothing.

Wake up, buddy!

I wasn t the first and won t be the last to get fooled. It s a sculpture, a very lifelike sculpture that has duped several people, including players, new employees and visitors.

Legend has it Michael Jordan walked into the Bucks practice facility, said hello to Art, was ignored and complained to Bucks management that the security guard didn t acknowledge him.

But I couldn t take my eyes off the guy. At first I thought maybe it s a tribute or memorial to a former Bucks security guard and thought that would be even creepier than the already-creepy lifelike sculpture.

Then, I noticed the name tag on the security guard Art.

I got it.

The sculpture is the product of Milwaukee s Marc Sijan, one of the leading artists in the field of hyper realism, according to an about page on his website1.

His work has been featured throughout the world, and if you think the security guard is, uh, interesting, check out some of his other work.
