Gigantic Sculptures for the WPC ‘Scale’.

For the WPC  ‘Scale’, I couldn’t think of a better photo than this one of the colossal 60 foot high carvings of the four American Presidents  at Mount Rushmore. Those fir trees look really minute.

Then I remembered another humongous sculpture, which stands on the peak of Corcovado mountain overlooking Rio. The iconic statue of ‘Christ the Redeemer’ stands 98 feet tall on a 26 foot pedestal, and the arms stretch 92 feet wide. This is the back view, taken in the mist. The people below look positively Lilliputian.
