This Creepy Park In Ireland Has Some Of The Most Disturbing And Chilling Statues On Earth

Located in Wicklow, Ireland, The Indian Sculpture Park in Victor’s Way is a creepy outdoor sculpture gallery like anything you’ve ever seen before.

Even that’s putting it lightly… it’s pretty terrifying to say the least. However, it does hold a deeper meaning, creator Victor Langheld established the park in 1989 after traveling to India in search of spiritual enlightenment.

The garden was actually built to induce self-reflection, with each statues own meaning. Most of the park’s statues are made of black granite, and range in height from 4 feet to 16 feet.

Eight statues are dedicated to Ganesha, showing the elephant god dancing, reading, and playing musical instruments. All the Ganesha sculptures were made in Tamil Nadu, India, and each took five craftsmen a year to make.
