Any similarity with other famous statues is mere coincidence.

200ft tall cross in IllinoisI passed it a couple times as a kid on road trips
Not my country, but North Korea makes very nice statues. I think it's one of their main exports.
>>134443672Looks like ugly postmodernist terminator goopOurs has SOVL
Meanwhile in China.
>>134443281That'd probably be considered racist or some shit now.
>>134443707There have been calls to remove it. Nobody wanted to install it because it cost money we do not have. It is located in the middle of nowhere with just a few neighborhoods and no business nearby. Simply put, to pull it down you need money, and the locals do not want it down because it might create enough tourism in the future to improve the community.
>>134443772made by a bunch of peasant mao simps and forced by the government to tear it down since it was unauthorized and made without permits
>>134443742If crosses are valid then behold the Valle de los Caidos' cross, the tallest one in the world, 150m tall (almost 500 ameriunits) from its base.
>>134443098Wow, only 182m? I'm 187m I'm taller than all of your big statues haha
>>134443855It is the largest cross in the world
>>134443838Makes sense, I guess that's why it looks so bad and kinda glad they took it down lol.
>>134443678Is this one better? It's the hand of God carrying the world.
>>134443909should be an upside down hand, the world is in the opposite direction.
>>134443098We don't have many tall statues representing people in my city, the really really tall one are usually representing concepts. But I'll post few ones that I like that has a antropomorphic body. Estatues here are usually small in high pillars with smaller ones in the bottom
A big retail chain here has neo-classical facades and a statue of liberty next to every store.

>>134445812with love, kiss
>>134445781A retired pilot that wanted to create his own Disneyland paid for it out of his own pocket so it's pretty good for what it is.
In 1930 year, Soviet government plan new building as seat of government. this will be topped by 100 meter statue of Lenin. his extended arm would be 30 meters in length and weigh 6k tons. it will be built on Cathedral of Christ the Savior which was demolished in 1931 year. construction on building begin 1938 but stopped by war. foundations and steel structure demolished and melted down for scrap metal. in 1958 year foundation converted to swimming pool. In 90th year cathedral rebuilt where pool was.
>>134443098My province has some fun ones
>>134446345What is it supposed to be?
>>134445966That would be epic ngl
>>134446395That one I posted is a giant Kielbasa sausage Ukrainian or Polish sausage that is pretty tasty.If you are referring to the one you posted idk what that nightmare fuel is supposed to be but is pretty coolThis is the worlds biggest Dinosaur statue apparently. That town has a big dinosaur muesem and they've found many fossils there
>>134446678>a giant sausageI thought the filename wasn't literal. They could have tried to make it seem a little more appealing.The statue I posted is Simon Bolivar fused with a Condor (the national bird of Colombia). It's meant to be an allegory of Colombia during its darkest moment of narco violence. The artist that made it was kidnapped for three months a couple of years before he made that statue.
>>134443855I saw that cross while on a trip to segovia, looks omnius as fuck.
VGH... GANDHI JI... VTTER SOVL>>134447401>still cucked by Hinduism after being Muslim for 700 yearskek

>>134447401Very cool. Also, holy fuck that thing is massive.
>>134447541True, good on you guys for not going full Paki sperg route and associating yourselves with Arabs or Persians or whateverI like Indonesian culture, what do you recommend in Bali and Sumatra
>>134443177I read somewhere the locals hate that statue, because it was just the whim of some rich fuck who built it in the 1980s
>>134447905That looks like a dark souls boss turned to stone ngl
Not the biggest statue of the country but I like this one. This lion holding an arrow represent the fact that this town resisted to prussians attacks in 1870 and stayed french whereas the Alsace up north was taken by Prussia.Since this day the lion is the symbol of the town. This is also where Peugeot factories are, hence the lion
>>134443098I thought Christ the Redeemer was at least the size of the Statue of Liberty but I guess it's just in a good spot?
>>134448183>That looks like a dark souls boss turned to stone nglMost Indian religious statues look like they're gonna start moving suddenly and a boss fight will ensue.
Giant Ksitigarbha statue near my place. It looks creepier the closer you get
>>134448307I wish this board were nicer to Indians because y'all consistently post cool shit.
>>134448307Why Indians almost never make statues in traditional style?
>>134448307Both this and the bird look pretty fucking coolY'all are aight Indianbros
>>134447905Wtf is that. Garuda trying to engage in autofelatio?
>>134448307>>134448390>>134448406>Most Indian religious statues look like they're gonna start moving suddenly and a boss fight will ensue.Case in point.>>134448401These are traditional styles too. Different parts of India have different styles of sculptures. The ones I've posted on this thread are all South Indian statues.
>>134448401Different parts of india probabyHis pic looks like it's from the north, whereas the south has some pretty different architectural styles like pic related and probably your pic too>>134448422The Jatayu vulture falling from the sky after being defeated by the demon king Ravana as he stole Sita
>>134447565>look up who designed this abomination>it's the same fucking inbred gayorgian subhuman who designed THIS piece of shit by any chance do people in puerto rico wish it was demolished?
>>134445966Also Tatlin's Tower was planned to be built in really early days but scrapped
>>134448380Why is he carrying a baby in his arm? What's the story?>>134448422In the Hindu epic - Ramayana, King Rama's wife - Sita is kidnapped by the demon king Ravana and he escapes with her on his flying chariot. Rama is away in the woods so he can't protect her. Jatayu, a divine bird spots Ravana abducting her and attempts to warn him. When he doesn't heed his warnings, Jatayu attacks him despite knowing that he isn't strong enough to defeat Ravana. After a brief aerial battle, Ravana slashes Jatayu and mortally injures him.When Rama returns, Jatayu tells him what has happened and breathes his last. Legend says that he died in that spot (where the statue was made).The statue is dedicated to him and is supposed to depict him fallen on the rocks after being slashed.
This one is from Santander Colombia, it's not that big and not also not a single structure but is actually fucking KINO. (1/3)
>>134448468The thing is sculpturing requires intimate work and doesn't translate well to huge statues. Stuff like your pic probably would crash down and fall easily in case of an earthquake since most statues are made of stone. I guess that's why they go for more robust, stronger designs.>>134448764>>134448787What's going on in this statue?
>>134448819So the statue is a Homage to the "comuneros" better translated as the peasants, it was during colonial times, tensions were high and the church along side with the kingdom of Spain started to ramp up taxes in the new world and in this place (santander name of the municipality) peasant revealed violently against everyone, the empire and the church, even before independence wars, the scenario represents the wrath of the people and the abuse and deceitful nature of religious institutions (3/3)
>>134447565>>134448542Lel>Popular legend states that the Statue was initially of Christopher Columbus, but that after being rejected by the US Government, its head was replaced, and it was sold to the Russian government as a nautical statue of Peter the Great. In November 2008, it was voted the tenth ugliest building in the world by Virtual Tourist.>A statue known as Birth of the New World depicting Christopher Columbus. The statue was rejected by the US government when Tsereteli attempted to have it installed there in 1992, in connection with the 500th anniversary of his voyage. The municipal government of Cataño, Puerto Rico, consented to having the statue built in their town, but later was unable to garner enough public support and funding. On August 15, 2008, the private contractor in charge of building a series of facilities for the 2010 Central American and Caribbean Games announced that the corporation had bought the structure and will build it in the municipality of Mayagüez, expecting to assemble it in time for the games. After this project was abandoned, the statue was moved to the municipality of Arecibo, where its assembly began during the spring of 2014. The statue was unveiled in Arecibo on June 14, 2016. This guy has a huge Columbus boner.
>>134448933Holy mother of based.
>>134448234There's an interesting arte video on that topichttps://youtu.be/2-LK7bg2pb8https://youtu.be/Vz-JfFyZnqM
>>134448967I know man, it looks like fucking like a dark souls battle, the Bishop is standing in a chest that represents the gold taken from the people,his left hand holds an axe, representing the Spanish empire, and his right hand holds a mask showing a friendly face, behind him there's a young man stripped out of everything, no clothes, very skinny, overall it's really nice, even at night.>Pic is the Park where the statues are located
Making statues are so cringe. You might as well create a new religion and worship them.
>>134449248Based Hindus do just thatReturn to Tengri
>>134447401Is that on top of a building? That makes me incredibly nervous
>>134449319Nahh, we have statues of Atatürk now. Left worships him here.

I mean are we forgetting the infamous saddam statue lol

>>134451462Must suck being a muslim, can't make statues of muhammad
>>134450414Don't you guys call him Jizou BosatsuCalling him the Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha while he looks so incredibly Asian feels weirdSame reason why I can't look at Kangiten and call him anything other than Vinayakar/Ganesha for example, just feels weird out of context

>>134451498Eh, plenty of others to make statues of. But i think in the big M’s case its better not to, maybe only stick it to other types of depictions since if statues are allowed its gonna be a huge dick measuring contest, us arabs cant even stop competing with building the tallest skyscraper. Maybe something small and cool like this New York statue (that got taken down)
>>134451756My fucking sides

>>134443098The Hermannsdenkmal is the tallest overall. The statue itself is 26,57 m tall and the base is 26,89 m tall. Never been there but it is on my "must-visit-list".
This one i vistited recently. Its called Deutsches Eck (German Corner) and here the moselle flows into the rhine crating a triangular shape. The statue is dedicated to the first german emperor Wilhelm I..The statue is 14 m tall and the base 23 m. Germany is not that big into huge statues. We like big bases.

If not for Shivaji, the marathi identity itself wouldn't exist in its current state today or would be very diminished so they take great pride in him.t. Has marathi friends.

>>134455320Why is there a soviet war memorial in Norway?
>>134443626why is Jesus t-posing in these statues instead of being nailed to an actual cross? would that be offensive?
>>134454558that guy looks based as fuck
>>134449246It's interesting that you know about that story. Another relevant fact is that the comunero rebellion became huge and they actually arrived very close to the capital when it was undefended but the archbishop of Zipaquirá (the nearest important town to Santafé) made a deal with them and agreed to their demands if they didn't enter the city. Then when the army arrived from Cartagena they ignored the deal and the leaders of the rebellion were hanged and quartered, their houses burned to the ground and their lands salted.

>>134458314Are you saying that the "t-pose" is a blessing pose and not a reference to the crucifixion?

>>134461148I think the same, it looks like a rocket. However since some lefties with nothing better to do sued the government because they used public funds to build that statue and the makers had to bullshit their way out of it saying it doesn't necessarily represent Jesus Christ, they couldn't have made a cross.
Can't post images so look up 'statuie Decebal'. It's pretty big and it's watching the Serbs on the other side of the Danube.

>>134461981Because I possess a functioning brain. What sort of question is this?
The Monkey hanger statue is GOAT>According to local folklore, the term originates from an incident in which a monkey was hanged in Hartlepool, England. During the Napoleonic Wars, a French ship of the type chasse marée was wrecked in a storm off the coast of Hartlepool. The only survivor from the ship was a monkey, allegedly dressed in a French army uniform to provide amusement for the crew. On finding the monkey on the beach, some locals decided to hold an impromptu trial; since the monkey was unable to answer their questions and because they had seen neither a monkey nor a Frenchman before, they concluded that the monkey must be a French spy. Being found guilty, the animal was duly sentenced to death and was summarily hanged on the beach.
>>134462020Not me personally but some douchebag was spamming trannies and other shit so the whole ISP got blocked from posting images. It's the biggest one in the country so a lot of people got affected.

This is the biggest one in my city.It's not that big but I like it a lot.
>>134463572Yeah I wish they'd make statues of our kings or some other historic figures instead. Like if they made a huge circle out of the statues of all our kings the size of that Jesus, holding swords impaled into the ground, with a giant Polish flag in the middle that'd be pretty cool. The pope can't coom to that though so that's a no-no.

There is a LENIN statue here in Pasto, Nariño, Colombia>Seen from afar, the sculpture in the atrium of the Christ the King temple in Pasto looks like another religious image worth admiring.>More than two metres high, it was finely sculpted in Ecuadorian marble seventy-two years ago and, in spite of the time, still retains the 'divine mystery' of the effigies of the Catholic saints of past times.>Up close, everything changes. The sculpture of haughty appearance abandons its religious charm to become what would be a scale image of Vladimir Ilyich Lenin>The Pastuso historian Enrique Herrera tells the legend: According to his account, in 1959, after the triumph of the Castro revolution in Cuba, Commander Fidel would have asked the Ecuadorian sculptor Eloy Campos to make a statue of the politician who led the building of the world's first socialist state.>"It is said that the sculptor was a member of the Ecuadorian communist party founded in 1926 and that after finishing the effigy of Lenin he kept it hidden because at that time those who supported that ideology were persecuted in that country," said Herrera.>The version of other researchers in the region also points out that Campos' business with the Castros did not materialize and that he decided to bury the statue under his house to avoid any suspicion from the conservative authorities of the time.>"Years later," Herrera continues, "the Jesuits of Pasto arrived at the house in Campos and asked him to build a statue of Saint Ignatius Loyola, the military man who founded the Community of Jesus in the 16th century. When the sculptor realised the resemblance between Lenin and the saint, he marked the figure that had already made the Jesuits' emblems and gave it to that religious community. >Another historian said that it would be Lenin because "unlike other saints this one does not have sandals but boots, the attire he wears is not a tunic and he carries the flag of the Russian revolution on his back".
