The photograph, taken in the Suomussalmi region of north-eastern Finland, shows a multitude of figures dressed in colourful clothes.

Stood in rows in a field, they oddly seem to be staring out at a line of trees - apparently waiting for something or someone.

But all is not as creepy as it seems.

The figures are actually scarecrows, which make up an art installation called The Silent People.

The Daily Star reports that a creation of local artist Reijo Kela, they have moved around different locations over the years including in a field in Lassila, Helsinki, in 1988, and the Market Place of Helsinki's Senate Square in 1994.

People passing by always question the meaning behind the exhibition, but the artist refuses to give an explanation, Amusing Planet reports.

It is believed Reijo Kela wants people to form their own interpretation.
