Across the globe, artists create sculptures of icons. Monuments are made to commemorate memorable historical figures, leaders and moments. As we’ve previously noted, many of them are downright amazing. After many years of work and millions of dollars spent, here are 20 of the most enormous monuments and statues on earth.


20. “Forever Marilyn”

Also listed on this website as one of the “most amazing giant sculptures,” it took Chinese artists two years to complete this work. This 25-foot tall sculpture was inspired by the 1955 movie “The Seven Year Itch.” It’s been displayed both the USA and Australia.

19.  The statue of Ganesha
