If you scare easily when it comes to sculptures of creepy little girls, then Maria Rubinke's work will likely scare the crap out of you.

Maria Rubinke is a talented Danish designer who has a taste for the macabre. These porcelain figurines in particular are part of a series that depicts little girls in the worst situation possible. Each is subjected to an accident and the most unfortunate, violent circumstance. For example, there's one that looks up at a bunch of balloons that are really decapitated heads with clown makeup on, while another has decided to saw off a part of her leg. The lack of pupils in the sculptures' eyes certainly makes these unfortunate souls look scarier and all the more haunting. While the figurines are scary and disturbing at times, Rubinke is one of those artists who still manages to intrigue and capture people's attention.
