  3. Hi Sean. Thank You visiting and commenting. I visited the link You gave and I liked the cement truck. I like art that is not too “stiff” and official.

  4. Hello Sartenada,
    certaines créatures sont rigolotes, mais d’autres plutôt inquiétantes. Honnêtement, je ne viendrais pas les admirer à la lueur d’une bougie, une nuit sans lune !😛

    • Merci Marion. Ce parc des statues est ouvert por tous gratuitement. Le seul que le propriétaire veut, est autographe! Le propriétaire est un homme qui les a fait tous que on peut les admirer. Il y a a peu près 450 statues. On peut librement rôder là dans la cour de sa maison. Il y a des dizaines milliers visiteurs chaque été.

  8. I don’t know why I never saw this Blog before! What interesting statues. I have just been reading about Parikkala and how the statues have loud speakers inside them! I would love a day to walk around that park.

    • Hi Jackie.

      So nice that You liked these a little bit od statues. I have also part two ready, but I will not publish it until few weeks. The owner is dead and what happened to statues during the last summer, when nobody took care of them. You’ll see then.

      Thank You for Your visit and comment.

    • Hi Denise.

      This statue park is awesome and there are few similar, but maybe this is the best. This kind of parks are “hidden gems” which are not told in travel guides. I did find one another this summer and will make a post about it before winter and snow arrives. Thank You. Btw, I publish a new post bimonthly, not so often, but maybe my photos inspire people. Thank You ordering my blog. I always answer to comment and visit commenter’s blog!

      Have a great day!
