Film History Honored Through Insane Terminator Sculpture

"Arnold Schwarzenegger decreed 'I'll be back!' in his most famous movie line. But not even Arnold could have imagined that his return would be in the form now on display at the Ripley's Believe It or Not! Orlando Odditorium," reads this release from Ripley's Believe It or Not (via Movieline). Nor should he have imagined his return would be in this form, because it's really insane.

Artist Enrique Ramos--a man also credited for giving us "Elvis created from dozens of smaller portraits of Elvis" and "Princess Diana painted on ants"--has assembled a variety of media (including "a real vampire bat!") into a tribute to film history, which just so happens to have taken the form of a live-size Terminator covered in what looks like the icing surfaces of a supermarket's movie-themed birthday cakes. BELIEVE IT OR NOT. You should look at these detail shots before deciding, though. It's like the IMDb meets schizophrenia.

Schwarzenegger's face, honoring the faces of Cameron Diaz, Julia Roberts, and Jimmy Neutron:

Figures the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise would get that primo groin region:

Frankenstein's Monster, The Mummy, Jurassic Park, The Simpsons... Wolverine?

Visual representation of the moment the artist transitioned from careful handcrafting to, "fuck it, I'll just print out the Shrek logo and paste it on there."

Maybe I'm just not yet evolved enough to process this. I choose not to believe it.
