I found this beautiful (sculpted) creature at a sculpture park

Spartan2470

That was made by [Francois Lelong](http://www.francoislelong.fr/en/projects) and is at Stevens Point Sculpture Park in Wisconsin.


EckisReckis

I was waiting for your exact comment. I forgot to get a pic of the creator plaque. Thank you


biggstack

I was just there this past Sunday for the first time and took several shots of this piece with my phone. I saw your pic and thought reddit had pulled an image out of my pics gallery somehow. I am not a bright man.


Talks_To_Cats

Hey, reddit noticed you're a bit low on karma, so we uploaded some stuff for you.

Went to UWSP for college and I had to stop and do a double take as I was scrolling! Fun to see this on Reddit :)


EckisReckis

I’m so happy that the college has such a huge contribution to the town


firefawkexxx

Do you have anymore cool ones from the park?


EckisReckis

I do but I’m too smooth brained to figure out how to link them in a comment


MischeviousCat

Upload them to imgur and post the imgur link :) Actually, links might not be allowed... Uhh, not sure, I guess.


EckisReckis

Okay I think I got it. If it works thank you, if not thank you anyway. https://imgur.com/gallery/vkCsOR5


MischeviousCat

Yes, it worked!


firefawkexxx

The last one is definitely my favorite. Thank you so much for sharing!


firefawkexxx

I’d have the same problem. Thanks for sharing this one.


galliohoophoop

One of Loki's bastard children?


Ghost_dog123

Thx for the info


flyingmonkeybucket

thanks for that, i saw the picture and thought i know this sculpture. i just couldn't remember where from. my brother has a couple sculpture's there.


guhbe

Much better than finding it in your driveway, barely illuminated by your porch lights at night when you go to take out the trash. For real tho, really cool sculpture.


DrSmirnoffe

As you move to close the door, you hear the creaking of rusted metal. Looking from the window, you see that it has crept a bit further. You call the cops, but by the time they arrive, it has already left your lawn. The following morning, you go out to collect your paper, only to find it on your lawn, with a metal cat sculpture perched on its back. Around the cat's neck is the collar of next door's cat. A week goes by without a sighting of either. You later learn of an amber alert regarding one of the local kids. That night, the deer and the cat have returned to your front lawn, accompanied by a scrap sculpture of a small child. You promptly decide to move house. The real horror begins.

SCP:9838 The Rusty Forest God


OggyTheKing

I have waited for an SCP enjoyer to appear here.


DrSmirnoffe

I'll admit, I was thinking "the Foundation's gonna want to contain this one" after writing this. Hell, maybe this was made by someone from Are We Cool Yet?, after unearthing forbidden knowledge in the Wanderer's Library. After all, IIRC someone from AWCY? was responsible for the creation of SCP-173, the very first anomaly written by the fandom. And yes, I've read my fair share of SCP content. Or more accurately, listened to it in audio form courtesy of The Exploring Series on YouTube.


surajvj

Your screen play is enough to give chills.


uhluhtc666

This evil thing! I was taking a late walk through there, playing Pokemon Go. It was just shy of full dark and I see this thing, all dark shadows and ominous. Stupid this made me jump.


Iameveything

The sculpture looks like an exact copy of the monster in the Netflix movie The Ritual. Bunch of guys in tents in the forest get their jaws ripped off and pinned to tree branches by the monster.


KalEl1232

r/Hannibal would love this.


6_Hours_Ago

...this is my design.


Spaztrick

What about r/natureismetal ?


KalEl1232

Touche, spaztrick. Touche.


theglenlovinet

So it’s a Leshen mixed with a centaur? That’s awesomely terrifying.


WhatMyWifeIsThinking

Haha, Witcher vibes for sure!


Spicy_Gynaecologist

Wind's howling..


ColtMcNasty

How do you like that silver!?


Spicy_Gynaecologist

Should never have come here!


Drusgar

That was my first thought, too. What oil should I use on this beast? Hybrid?


CBate

Canadian Leshen


ferngully99

It's that ancient forest god off that swedish forest movie. Definitely comes alive and chases people. (Yes it's called The Ritual, and yes everyone needs to watch it)


emseefely

The ritual! God that movie was so creepy good.


ferngully99

Yes! I can never remember the name. Gotta watch in full darkness.


dpforest

The monster was described as “a bastard child of Loki” and I thought that was so cool. I guess a child of Loki would have illusion-type abilities which was a major part of the movie actually.


Miss_Musket

I'm getting major Cernunnos vibes from it. It's really cool!


Catinthemirror

Exactly (except I was thinking Herne since I learned him that way).


DatSkrillex

I thought "that's Cernunnos" right away, I absolutely love this sculpture.


GeneralCorrosive

The Ritual?


TheRedEarl

Finally someone else has seen it! One of the most underrated and unwatched films I happened to stumble upon. Plot was very creepy. I loved it!


shadowdash66

Wendigo?


EckisReckis

The whole time I was looking at it and walking around it felt like it was looking at me


MischeviousCat

That's Loki in the movie, isn't it? Edit: No, whatever a "Jōtunn" is Edit 2: It's the "bastard daughter of the Norse Trickster God Loki"


middlebird

Weirdest looking movie monster I’ve seen in a while.

AmbivalentAsshole

Fucking **no**. My luck I'd be day-trippin and come across this thing and bug the fuck out


6thPentacleOfSaturn

Different strokes I guess. I'd try to befriend it and learn its secrets.


Rata-toskr

Something something Pan's Labyrinth


Thatonemoox

It would probably offer you unimaginable power, but you have to die first.


6thPentacleOfSaturn

Definitely a time in my life I'd have taken that deal.


makapaka_madafaka

I love that you specified it was sculpted XD


althea_alethia

That's suspicious


makapaka_madafaka

Be quwiet. Its hunting season for deaw centauw. *loads saiga with drum mag*


OnTheGreyScale

It is gorgeous but that would scare the crap outta me if I saw this by the water at night. 👀


Youve_been_Loganated

This thing must be frightening at night. I have a friend who lives in Vegas and every time we drive over to her house, we forget that theres two statues of very tall humanish things standing at the corner. Freaks us out but I imagine it must be really nice art in the daytime.


SweetDank

Been playing too much Witcher lately...my first thought was: Do I need the hybrid oil or the relict oil for this Leshen-Centaur?


Adventus_2

I bet that has scared the shit out of some hikers at night


FestiveSquid

I thought that was a Spriggan for a sec and audibly groaned. I play Skyrim with a mod that adds dense forest in Whiterun plains and there are Spriggans EVERY FUCKING WHERE


MilfinAintEasyBabe

Fuck Spriggans dude. They are the worst.


WalrusTeamSix

One man’s beautiful is another man’s fever dream


FandomsIlike

*quietly whispers* "are you an Architect?"


Sir-Muntaqueen

You call this beautiful !? this is LITERALLY the bane of anyone going out for a jog at night... if I see that thing in the corner of my eye I am legitimately going to just lie in fetal position and pray that my soul leaves me behind... Serious note though, the craftmanship looks pristine !


yammymaam

Thanks. I hate it.


BlackSquirrel05

Yeah this is is fucking creepy.


mkul316

I like how you specify this was sculpted in the title.


TalionIsMyNames

Imagine seeing that for the first time at night alone ...


pHScale

"It has the head of a deer, the body of a man, and the body of a deer" Two bodies? "yes"


unitedfandoc

Imagine stumbling across this at night tme and not knowing that it's a statue.


mvslice

SCP material


potatosteph

Thank you for clarifying it is a sculpture


KoopyPoopy

Hannibal vibes


Dark_Eyes

For real! Creeps me out...


eqazec

Louis-senpai!


FupaHorizon

This sculpture is disturbing to me and I feel that it has an ill will toward me. Art is cool and I like when it makes me feel stuff. This thing terrifies me


EckisReckis

I have the exact opposite feeling with this. It feels like a protector of sorts that will help me as long as I respect the forest


FupaHorizon

Art is cool :)

Sculpted? Looks all natural to me...


ViciousVin

It looks like that kangaroo that strangled that guys dog


CmdrSpaceMonkey

Kangermoose: scourge of canines, destroyer of dogs


Suckydog

Looks even better during the winter https://old.reddit.com/r/pics/comments/nlolsj/elk_centaur_by_francois_lelong_stevens_point_wi/


EckisReckis

Wow that’s amazing


ChefAssassinn

The foggy pics are probs the best tbh.


saraseitor

It's beautiful but it would be terrifying to walk around at night and suddenly noticing that shape under the moonlight right next to the water.


Raftacular

Wait that shits not real?


throwa764

Can’t wait for this to show up on r/photoshopbattles


EckisReckis

I haven't even thought of that. u/Suckydog has a much cooler pic of it that would fit there better.

Good thing you told us it was (sculpted)

I don’t like the arms..

They’re ready to grab

Metal deer solid


weeghostie00

Yeah that's a skinwalker for sure


TisFury

My first thought too..


Napa_Swampfox

Yeap! A Windigo!


MrSeverum

Thanks for alerting us that this is sculpted. I thought we were under attack for a moment.


SnackFraction

Looks like something from the movie The Ritual.


TikkiTakiTomtom

r/creepy would love this

Creepy annihilation vibes


Rush-Flimsy

I CAN APPRECIATE THE ARTFUL DEDICATION... BUT UHMMM NOPE NOPE NOPE.... DON'T WANNA SEE THIS IN THE WOODS... I AM NOT A FAN OF SHITT8NG IN MY OWN PANTS UNCONTROLLABLY.


Lotus532

This is incredible!


S1R_1LL

Oddly terrifying..


Radasscupcake

This is what I imagine in my mind when hearing cryptid stories about woodland creatures.


Sdubbwobber

The ritual


krekdrja1995

If I walked by that in the dark I absolutely would shit myself


PHRESH21

That's honestly really freaky


thewholerobot

Put red lights in its eyes and a weiner on it and send that to Denver- they will love it there.


SportsnetSteve

Have you seen the stag in Hannibal? (TV Series) Stirring.


LunarPooner23

I lived in Point for eight years before moving to Utah. This is so cool to see.


NotThat0neKid

Probably one of the coolest places in Stevens Point


AlexL225

It’s deermanhorse. Quick somebody tell Al Gore.


TinCupTan

**Sigh** *unzips*


ISAMU13

I don't mean to kink-shame but...really?


shadowst17

That's no sculpture OP, you've intruded on sacred land and are being followed by an ancient race once thought to simply be tall tales. Remember OP, don't blink, don't even blink, blink and you're dead. They are fast, faster than you can believe. Don't turn your back, don't look away and **DON'T BLINK!** Good luck


ladyjanitor

Just no


tayyoungs

If you found it, why did u/wizard098 post this same pic on r/oddlyterrifying 5 hours before you posted here?


Leena52

Incredible!! So it’s representing a Swedish God? Where is this sculpture park?


Sinjasaur

Stevens Point Wisconsin


Leena52

Oh grea. We travel to Western Wisconsin frequently! I’ll check it out next time I’m up that way. I need to walk among the sculptures.


yungkevsta

This sculpture definitely kills


TwoDrinkDave

Has six limbs, so is it an insect?


O-hmmm

The setting for it is perfect.


zonewebb

Hello Nightmare...


sangunpark1

this is awesome, a much better aesthetic for a sort of centaur


Hardass_McBadCop

I believe it's called a cervitaur when it's a deer instead of a horse.


sarzec

I remember this guy from the movie the Ritual


Everettrivers

Someone call the foundation.


bbinnebose

Reminds me of the Fiend from Witcher 3


Horndave

That's just a reindeer with extra steps


JollyRainfall

Ever consider centaurian creatures having two ribcages?


adavi608

A wendeergo?


corpseCV

Reminds me of images from the Hannibal series


RibRabThePanda

Now imagine you turned around and it wasn't there on your way back - that's how you terrify people AND make money! :D


JetMayor

Reminds me of that deer in adventure time lol


XenMonkey

Looks beautiful and majestic on a bright summer's day, I'm sure it'll look a little more... disconcerting... on a cold foggy winter's night :)


EckisReckis

I plan to go back in the winter and look at everything covered in snow and ice


gamenwatch113

Come here you pretty steif


shekkie

This made me think of Byron, the deer headed butler from Josiah Bancroft's Books of Babel series


subsonic87

I hope this doesn't awaken anything in me…


Indepentthinker53

Creepy cool!


TripleSixxxxx

LOL - a perfect SCP.


YeHaLyDnAr

Wendigo


HypnonavyBlue

"...the thing, whose name sounded like 'Horned Head', but was not..."


singlenguyen

Wonderfully made


shadowdash66

Terrifying if you just find this randomly while walking along.


Gruntkiller615

It’s cool and all but if I saw that thing in the dead of night I would shit a brick


saint_ryan

The guardian of the forest telling us “Antlers” will never be released.


tomaszchlebinski

Holy crap, a rein-human-deer, looks like a thing from some ancient Finnish mythology! :D

ok-Ay_guy

Almost Irvine from berzerk


Pheatt

Imagine the heart attack you'd have encountering that statue in the dark.


Steves_bad_day

Imagine you're just walking in the forest then you hear "hult who goes there!?" And it's just this thing.


Lucidiously

Nuckelavee! Oh Nuckelavee! You're big and evil and heinous!


EckisReckis

Omg I love Nuckelavee. I’ve been thinking about them for so long but couldn’t remember what they were called. Thank you so much


jay_taps

Anyone else think it looks like kangaroo jack? Lol


Hazburgite

That is a great sculpture park I have photos when the pond was frozen.


EckisReckis

OMG I have to see


Ok_Comparison_6293

creepy


Ok_Spread6389

Very cute picture


Xaeris813

Could you imagine how freaky that would be if you were lost in the woods at night and stumbled upon that?


jeefray

OhMuzGawd

Kinda r/WTF, ngl.

Keev1234

I bet someone put their dick in that


Dethproof814

Lol imagine seeing this in the silhouette of the moon at night. Nightmare fuel


bluntologist1291

That’s a spriggan


Spicy_Eyeballs

Thanks I hate it.


LeonDeSchal

Imagine tripping and wanting to enjoy nature and then seeing this!


okiebill1972

Reminds me of a Kardashian.


memilygiraffily

I read that as, "I found this beautiful (stupid) creature at a sculpture park." I am so sorry.

That's a warning, heed it.
