While you would not typically expect to come across haunting artwork in the natural world, one Japanese artist has made it their mission to place a series of works in these types of locations.
Nagato Iwasaki is a sculptor and artist whose pieces are naturally found deep in the woods of Japan. They are inspired by the human body and they are created with the use of driftwood.
Sculptures this exceptional beg for closer inspection and while they may look comparatively benign in the daytime, these spooky pieces induce a completely different reaction when they are seen at night. The longer you stare at them, the more mesmerizing they inevitably become. These strange sculptures would definitely frighten anyone who walked through these forests, especially those who are unwary.
If the light hits these sculptures just right, they can even be similar to a group of monsters prowling through the forest. These sculptures come in a variety of shapes and sizes and thanks to the painstaking work that Iwasaski puts in, they are all equally worthy of your time.
Some of them have even been placed in the water, as a means of showing how the average person goes through a typical day in the woods.
There are some who believe that the figures are supposed to represent zombies or even spirits of the forest. Some may even view them as horror film protagonists (or even antagonists).
Sculptures like these may give some people nightmares without really trying to do so. They are also faceless, which certainly contributes to the very creepy feeling that they are designed to evoke.
The level of detail that has been put into these sculptures is unbelievable and the best part of all is that each of them is open to your own personal interpretation.
