A massive hornets' shed fused with a wooden statue making it look like a tortured soul trying to escape from hell. (Obviously)

CountBubs posted an image of the terrifying sight on Wednesday, explaining: “An abandoned hornet’s next my dad found in his shed that he hadn’t been in for a couple of years. The head is a part of a wooden statue it fused with.”
