Raelian UFO Peace Park.

Raelian UFO Peace Park

On the side of the highway to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is an unusual sculpture park. Several cast concrete sculptures comprise a "Peace Park" created by one of the island's adherents to the Raelian UFO religion. Several of the sculptures feature the symbol of the Raelian movement, a six-pointed star with a spiral and a six-pointed star with a swastika.

The main sculptures are a large nude woman with the Raelian symbol on her chest, and a concrete arch that advertises the group's web site address. One concrete sculpture looks like a crop circle, but it's actually a model of a proposed galactic embassy that the group wants to build on the Big Island -- after they were denied permission to build it in Israel. There are also several animal sculptures: peacocks, chameleons, native birds, and a sea turtle.
