A gigantic man crawls out from the earth in this spectacular outdoor sculpture titled Feltépve (“ripped up” or “popped up”) by Hungarian artist Ervin Loránth Hervé. Crafted from polystyrene, the larger-than-life sculpture was temporarily installed in Budapest’s Széchenyi Square for the Art Market Budapest art fair that took place earlier this October.

With an expressive, snarling face, the colossal figure looks like he is erupting from a deep, underground lair, pulling up the lawn so that he can escape into the open air. The sculpture, which is rendered in subdued shades of gray associated with the earth and nature, is completely selfie-comptabible according to the artist, as Hervé encourages viewers to circulate pictures of themselves and the installation on social media.
