Some hikers swear to his true existence, but could it be that they've just come across Yeti by Misstika on a moonless night in New York City?

This grassy sculpture is featured at the 2011 Figment Festival in NYC alongside a range of unusual pieces of interactive art. The bushy green Bigfoot has been designed in the hulking ape-like image of the mythical creature, sewn with soil and strips of sod to give him a friendlier look.

The figure becomes all the more amicable when visitors to the outdoor exhibitions take their places behind the cutout figurine. A hole created in the head of the statue allows anyone to put his face into this Yeti by Misstika, instantly brightening up the green beast with a lighthearted smile.
