For over a decade, artist Ayano Tsukimi has been creating life-size dolls to represent the deceased residents of a small Japanese village. Today, the dolls outnumber the villagers 10 to 1.
Nagoro is a small village in Shikoku, Japan.
Resident and artist Ayano Tsukimi returned to the village after an 11-year absence only to discover that many of her old neighbors and friends had either moved or passed away.
The town population is also dying, and has dwindled down to about 35 people.
But there are over 350 doll-people living there.
They are taking over.
You can even see them on Google Maps.
