Creepy?? Unnerving?? Not really. They are just ugly...but cool nonetheless.

Creepy? Well, that's a relative term. I think they look cool. Would love to have them flanking my entry hall.

PS: Thanks, archaeologists, for not calling them "ritual objects", ie: your all too common go-to term for things you don't understand. "We assume they are guardians" sounds cooler, and still expresses confusion with a stated and acknowledged lack of understanding.

Nighttime.
You hear an unusual noise...
You open the front door and one of those statues s standing there!!
Still..silent. With those blank holes for eyes looking at you in the moon light.

The thing you have to understand when you are looking at the religious icon of another faith is that you see the icon while they see the meaning. Think of what a crucifix with Jesus nailed bleeding to the cross would look like to someone that knew nothing of the christian faith.
