Imagine running into one of these exotic creatures in the woods. Surely we would be able to appreciate the beauty of these sculptures over the discomfort of soiled pants. These creepy humanoid figures are the work of Japanese artist Nagato Iwasaki. The sculptures have been constructed by putting together pieces of driftwood into humanoid forms.
They are part human, part tree and it is perhaps the lack of facial features that makes them creepy. Addition of those features would perhaps make them more akin to Groot, and less like tree zombies. On that note, watch this trailer of Guardians of the Galaxy, and see the adorable baby Groot.
