Chinese retouching artist Chunlong Sun has created a bizarre portrait series called “Celebrity,” which shows 5 of the most infamous world leaders from recent history gently holding stuffed animals in their arms. In the portraits, which were made using almost-look-alike Chinese stand-ins, the leaders look at once friendlier and creepier than ever before.

See the unsettling portraits and Sun’s impressive comparison between the true infamous leaders and their counterparts.
