Lukova’s Church of Ghosts

In the Czech Republic, there is a medieval church long abandoned by the town Lukova after an ill-omened roof collapse during a funeral service half a century ago. With decades of decay running unchecked, this hauntingly historic edifice was on the verge of closure--until the ghosts arrived. First it was just nine shrouded figures, seated silently in the pews. Then ghostly parishioners continued to appear, until an entire phantom congregation had gathered, shrouded and pensive, in hushed rows. Created by art student Jakub Hadrava, the eerie sculptures were created with a purpose, “…to remind people the church had a history and a past.” Video Link: www.youtube.com
