Many would agree that art is usually way more than just aesthetics. It can carry a series of symbolisms and representations, which can be of a religious, political, social or historical nature. This especially applies to statues, which stand tall in the cities of the world as reminders of specific times. Whether they’re gold, copper, bronze or even concrete, all statues share one factor that draws the most attention – the height, which can often even surpass buildings.

Designer Amir Kedir has decided to compare the heights of the most famous statues in the world and created an amazing 3D animation to do so. In the video, you can see the statues quickly assemble from the smallest to the largest one. Hold your breath and take a look!
