Docker images physical storage place

Where can be images found in the filesystem? If I list all available images with docker images I see a size for every image. Are there single files with the given sizes in the filesystem or it is only estimated size of an image?

    No, you cannot see individual image files on the file system.

    They are stored in a large sparse image file in /var/lib/docker/devicemapper

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
