13 Spooky Sculptures That Will Make You Scared Tonight


In the past we talked about weird, bizarre and creative sculptures as a form of art and communication human use. But what if we wish to transmit fear, anxiety, terrifying images and all the horrible feelings only our mind and imagination can conceive?

We invented scary sculptures. So creepy that if we displayed them in a place, we could turn it in a ‘piece of hell’ where the most sensible individuals can feel uncomfortable and unwilling to stay. And in case you think they are just hilarious, at least you would have some good fun. So keep going and enjoy this images collection.
