First you need to know is that these figures are part of a project called The Silent People, and they were placed here by a local artist Reijo Kela. They can be found in Finland along Highway 5 near the town of Suomussalmi. The number reaches nearly 1000 scarecrows.
Some say that the reason why these scarecrows are placed is because of the brutal battle between Finland and the Soviet Union during World War II, but it’s not sure. Either way, those are some scary scarecrows.
