This is possibly the best statue in the world!

Hmm, it's closer to being the right way up from where you're standing to where someone in australia is standing

The location just adds to the wonderfulness of it.

Is he standing on his head? Or is the planet balanced on his head?

This one, pictured at Rockefeller Center, now resides at the closest thing the CMU campus has to a main entrance. It's pretty much universally reviled (except by those who make the decisions about statues on campus, of course).

That's a curious, if less radical, one. The perspective and scale of it are unusual enough that I'd really want to see it in person to get a sense of it.

Just when I was worrying about the state of statuary in the whole. Though I still like the three arrows outside of Virginia City the best.

Is it real? I don't claim to be an expert on Melbourne, but ristin and I haven't heard of it. We recognise the other two by the same photographer.

Aha. This press release confirms it's real, but it was only intended as a temporary statue which has probably been pulled down by now. Part joke, part political commentary.

Great statue. I love it! It's like Monty Python built a statue. ^_^
