Inanimate Animals in Helsinki

How do they like their animals in Finland? Sculpted, painted, posed and not moving.

Down at the harbor, concrete turtles are all over the place. Security barriers disguised as kid's playthings? What's up with the bright lipstick?

On buses, bucolic scenes of a swimming moose. Vomiting seal at a central fountain.

Precious animals populate store windows, from little rabbits to mighty polar bears. Ready to shop?
