Veijo Rönkkönen, a former paper mill worker, completed his first sculpture in 1961, and now his yard, and the path leading to it, are filled with over 450 statues, 200 of which are self portraits of the artist in Yoga positions he has mastered so far. The statues have loudspeakers hidden inside them, and the sound effects add to the eeriness of this place.
Regarded by most as the most important ensemble of contemporary folk art in Finland, the sculpture park of Veijo Rönkkönen is a lot to take in, the first time you visit. Finding yourself surrounded by hundreds of creepy statues, grinning at you with their real human teeth, is enough to spook you into turning back as soon as you set foot in the park.
The decentent owner’s (Veijo Rönkkönen) lot is 6000 m² / 1.48 acres and having nearly 500 statues which were made during nearly 45 years.
Although he has had the chance to exhibit and even sell his artworks, in auctions, Veijo Rönkkönen has never agreed to showcase his art. Every time he was asked to showcase his work, the near-hermit always replied he needed to discuss it with the statues first. Sadly, they never agreed to travel.

now after looking at the pics and statues go ahead an imagine that say 2000-5000 years into the future the new human race finds this place and sets up a new archeological dig...
What kind of conclusions do you think future humans/archeologists will make about current humans??
will this place be the new Easter-island?
