Mysterious Theo van Gogh statues around Amsterdam


Someone has left several statues of what looks exactly like Theo van Gogh, film director and controversial figure who was brutally murdered on the Linnaeusstraat in East Amsterdam back in 2004.

The resemblance is striking, as is the pose of the statue, which is precisely how Van Gogh was found, albeit without the letter knifed into his chest.

The little statues remain a mystery. Nobody knows anything about them yet. According to comments on, it could be the same anonymous scupltor as the lumberjack in the tree.
