Does anyone else find these creepy?

Beautifully made, but sorry, a bit too creepy for me…and I have a pretty wild imagination and actually really like strange things. The Artist is Kate Clark, here is a snippet from her artist statement:

Studying the tension between personal and mythical realms, I create sculpture that synthesizes the human face into the body of wild animals. Initially, these forms can be shocking and repelling as viewers both recognize and reject their presence. The disruptive alignment of the intimate face and animal body asserts that human experience is mostly contained, a mask which is incomprehensible and psychologically complex.
