Google Maps Street View has snapped a very sinister looking scene in a Finnish field. As one travels down Highway 5 outside of Suomussalmi, Finland, look to the side and the bizarre spectacle looms into view. The field is teeming with figures standing stock still and in total silence. Even if one changes the date on Street View and travels back in a time a few years - the figures are still there.

So what is really happening on this field in Finland on Street View? Are they people congregating or is there more than meets the eye?
On closer inspection of the figures, it becomes clear that they are not human at all.
They are rows upon rows of scarecrows dressed up in human clothing.
Their purpose is not to keep birds away from crops, however. It is, in fact, an art installation.
Dubbed the Silent People, they are the work of artist Reijo Kela.
The scarecrows are made up of peat heads covered in straw hair and wooden bodies.
