scary hampstead stone head

Reddit user lolihull was taking a drunken walk home through Hampstead one night recently when she spotted this extremely sinister visage in one home’s front garden.

Still can’t see it? ENHANCE:

Adds lollihull:

‘It’s a huge stone head, bigger than their front door. It has a creepy looking face, like it used to belong to an old statue but fell off. I can’t imagine why anyone would want a huge stone head in their garden. I’m so tempted to go back in daylight when sober to see if I can work out what it is and why it’s there. The front garden was walled off apart from the archway you can see part of in the right of this pic, so surely they’d have to have it lifted in by a crane or something?!’

It is indeed a bit unnerving.
