Two mysterious skeleton-like Oscar statues showed up Thursday in two different areas of Los Angeles, one in the middle of Hollywood, and another near the famed Hollywood sign. They were created by UK artist D*Face, but their purpose outside of being connected to last Sunday’s Academy Awards, is not known. We actually got wind of these statues last week thanks to The Wrap, but it didn’t really hit our radar until Dane Cook posted a TwitPic of him next to one of them. Check out the photos after the jump.
The only clues to the statues’ purpose are plaques at the foot of each that read “Beauty is one snip away” and “Beauty is skin deep”. What do you think of the statues? See more photos at The Wrap.
