Wooden erection goes viral

Last week, hikers discovered the huge wooden erection at the summit of Mount Oetscher, in the Alpine peak, and blogger Marika Roth brought it to attention when posting pictures on her social media accounts.

And according to the Mirror Online, authorities are keen to find the artist behind the sculpture in order to decide what to do with it, but if nothing comes of the investigations, the sculpture will be handed to the owners of a land who are thought to be religious monks of the Cistercian Order in Lilienfeld.

And since the pictures went viral the area has seen a boost in tourism.
