Creepy sculptures with human teeth
These creepy sculptures stand along the road going from Imatra in Savonlinna, in Finland. The most interesting is the fact that they have human teeth. The maniac sculptor is unknown but the fact of creation is evident. Since the artist is unknown, there’s a suspicion that somewhere, near the road lives a dentist with artistic talent of a sculptor.
And, as it has become later known from some sources, the sculptor is not a maniac at all. In fact, he is a Finnish self taught artist Veijo Ronkkonen (born 1944), who lives in Parikkala, less than a kilometer from the Russian border. He began using dentures in his figures in 1976; ‘Javelin Thrower’ flaunts the false teeth of the artist’s father, who died in 1975. Visitors have since donated dentures to be used in Ronkkonen’s work.
