This spooky Ghost sculpture by Ieva Rubeze can be found near the Swedish Gate in Riga Old Town. The sculpture is quite new. It was unveiled in 2015.

Walking around Old Town Riga and came across this ghost statue in an alcove near the Swedish Gate. Could only find a sign about it being part of a public art program, but not an explanation of the piece itself. It does remind you of all the soldiers that passed through this gate and others that walked the city over the centuries.

Came across this by accident whilst walking around old Riga. Not a lot written about it at all, but good for a photo shoot.

Located between the Swedish Gate and the Latvian War Museum, The Ghost is a recent addition to Riga's monuments, having been unveiled in 2015. So, it has no history and its interest is only in it being a work of art.

Located next to the Swedish Gate, this was an interesting sculpture and reminded me a bit of the sculptures they had on Toompea Hill near the Neitsitorn Museum, Tallinn.

In Riga there has been a project called "Art at public places" and this statue is part of it. It was made 2015 and it is slightly hidden by the newly built city wall.

I wouldn't like to come across it at night as I didn't expect it so look so life like! It is placed under the old city wall which at the moment is having all the floor cobbles replaced so a bit dodgy underfoot but worth seeing it if you can reach it.

Came across this evocative and creepy sculpture by artist Ieva Rubeze on the Riga Free Old Town Tour. It's beautiful and worth checking out if you're in old Riga.

One to add to the collection of children, spouse, partner, friend pretending to be scared of a sculpture! Most likely you will happen upon it rather than seeking it out. We did visit in the day time though.......
