THE PARIKKALA SCULPTURE PARK

The sculpture park in Parikkala is built by self-taught artist Veijo Rönkkönen (1944–2010),

Veijo Rönkkönen, who worked at the local paper mill, started sculpting concrete statues in the early 1960s. For fifty years, until his death, he dedicated all his spare time to making his original art. There are some 500 different and skilfully executed statues, mostly human figures, as well as an amazing garden on the site.
