  • There are in Finland, not far from the village of Kojtsanlahti a strange place. This self-taught artist sculpture park Vejjo Rjonkkjonjena (1944-2010 years). The man, who lived almost his entire life under the yoke of oppressive mother, started casting of concrete sculpture, trying to tell people about yourself, about your thoughts and feelings and passions. Different people have these statues evoke very different and conflicting emotions. Undoubtedly they created not quite healthy and a very unhappy person. Suffice it to say that many sculptures stuck real human teeth. More than 500 sculptures. you can treat them differently, but clearly it is impressive.

Inserted artificial eyes and jaw (according to the Guide, these items were donated to seulptoru his friends ophthalmologist and dentist) produce intimidating impression. I would rather leave the Park and certainly not overseeing the reag call leave a donation. There is an expression of perversions and complexes of the author-sculptor. Aesthetic! With young children there do not go ispugaete and spoil the mood and would influence the development of good taste.
