Le pouce (the thumb), is an artistic creation by the renowned French sculptor Cesar Baldaccini. He designed this sculpture in 1965 and modeled it after his own thumb. This eye catching sculpture weighs 18 tonnes and is 12 meters high.
A Billy goat has found a new bluff at the Spitalfields in London. Unveiled in 2011, "I Goat" stands proudly on top of a grouping of packing crates, 3.5 metres above passing Londoners. The goat, hand-sculpted by artist Kenny Hunter, was the winner of a publicly voted competition in 2010, beating out seven other entries.
Standing at more than 300 feet tall, Zurab Tsereteli’s 1997 sculpture of Peter the Great commemorates the czar’s maritime feats. Produced at enormous expense on an island on the Moscow River, the stainless-steel, bronze, and copper statue has never gotten much love from locals. (In fact, persistent rumors claim that “Peter” was once meant to be Christopher Columbus, but that Tsereteli couldn’t find a city to take him on).
