If you’ve been to the app store on your phone recently, you’ve probably noticed a slew of clever apps that let you virtually swap faces with someone standing next to you. It’s a fun party trick, but Imgur’s JakeMarshall91 took it to another level by swapping faces with ancient sculptures in a museum.
