The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) has dedicated a portion of its museum to Guillermo del Toro, recreating some of the fantasy-horror director’s most macabre and fantastical boogeymen.

The “At Home with Monsters” exhibit displays replicas of the orphan ghost from The Devil’s Backbone, the Faun and child-eating Pale Man from his Spanish-language masterpiece Pan’s Labyrinth, and the pint-sized—albeit terrifying—tooth fairy from Hellboy, among others.

The replicas are arranged alongside del Toro’s personal sketches, notes, and paintings as well as artifacts and maquettes from his most-loved (and feared) films.
