Hikers in the Austrian Alps will be surprised to see 100 life-sized cast iron statues, thanks to renowned English sculptor Antony Gormley. The statues cover about 150 square kilometers of land, and when flown over, can be seen as minuscule specks.

Placed 2,000 meters above sea level, Gormley is hoping that these statues will raise questions about the human existence and if we really belong to the planet. The artist's works will be shown for two years in the Austrian mountains.
