One day, residents of the Estonian village of Otepyaya found an ideal round hole on the edge of the forest. It led into a thicket and most of all looked like a portal to another world. Photos of the unusual place quickly spread across the web and went viral. Users expressed a variety of assumptions about the appearance of the hole, from scientific to the most fantastic.

There were many explanations of the nature of the round hole in the thicket. Someone believed that these were traces of the presence of aliens, and someone suggested that a sect was operating in Otep. There were even those who were not too lazy and came to the place to communicate with the locals. But they claimed that they knew nothing about the mysterious hole.

But soon everything became clear. It turned out that the perfect hole in the forest is the work of the artist Antti Laitinen. He made the hole back in 2018 and was surprised when the belated hype started around him. Antti saw his art object on Twitter, where it was actively discussed in one of the groups.

The artist noticed that his creation was "photoshopped", since in reality the "portal" no longer had such clear boundaries because of the branches that had grown. A hole in the forest, like any other work of art, has its own name: Broken Landscape IV. Laitinen gave an interview to journalists in which he revealed all the secrets of the strange round door to the forest:

In his work, the artist used the most ordinary stairs and a garden pruner. The ideal shape of the art object was given thanks to a measuring pole, which Antti rotated around the selected center.

The artist told the press that this work is part of a major Broken Landscape project. His main idea is the transformation of the familiar landscape with geometric shapes.

It remains to say that Laitinen's experiments with branches look quite harmless, compared to Juliana Notari's masterpiece from Brazil. He can not only puzzle the viewer, but is also able to drive him into the paint.
