Haypeople

Suomussalmi

Haypeople is a piece of land art produced by Reijo Kela in 1988. Those driving past marvel at the “people” standing in the field. Even the artist himself can’t explain the meaning of the work, and it seems to be there mainly to make passers-by wonder and want to meet these quiet figures. The members of the local workshop Hanslankarit change the scarecrows’ clothes for every new season, so it’s worth visiting the place again to check out their latest styles.
