    Default Famous Strange Statues and Fountains discussion

    This is a discussion thread for the following file:

    Famous Strange Statues and Fountains

    There are quite a few blogs out there with lists of statues that seem strange to the authors of those blogs. I began a project to locate as many of them as I can. Thus far I've found quite a few. Most are visible, though some are in shadows or under trees or the image is too old. Also note that three or so of the statues are in other places in their own posts, but I wanted a proper complete list of statues I'd found in these blog posts.



    Some statues include:



    Europe:

    Kafka monument, Prague

    Tower Babies, Prague

    Urinating Statues, Prague,

    Policeman Being Tripped, Brussels

    Faceless Seawall Babies, Belgium

    Big Thumb, Paris

    Tugendbrunnen, Nuremberg

    Houseball, Berlin (it reminds people of Katamari Damacy)

    Parking on a Building Side, Netherlands

    'Iron Lady', Netherlands

    Faucet, Netherlands

    Gold Ladies, Netherlands

    Cube Head, Spain (I know it has a name, but I can't find it)

    Magic Faucet, Aqualand

    River Statue, Cordova

    Hands, Como Italy

    Melting Cow, Hungary

    Headington Shark

    Minotaur and Hare, Cheltenham

    Twisted Revolver, Malmo - Sweden



    Americas:

    Walking to the Sky, Pittsburgh Pennsylvania

    Cloud Gate (aka The Bean), Chicago Illinois

    Massive Fork, Springfield Missouri

    Massive Chair, Los Angeles, California

    Metalmorphosis, Charlotte, North Carolina

    Jolly Green Giant, Blue Earth Minnesota

    The Awakening, Washington DC

    Bread Line, Washington DC

    Girl in a Wet Suit, Vancouver

    Mano (hand) in Uruguay

    Since I uploaded the file I've edited several of the placemarks to properly reflect the name of the statue and artist as soon as I figured it out. Some of the works get a bit more information, if it's interesting.

    I've also added several statues since the file first went live. There's still more out there, but they'll come in time. I try to keep the main page udated with most of the statues that are placemarked.

    It' worth a look although there's not much to see on Google earth, there are Panoramio photo's loaded on there.

    I have updated some of the placemarks in Prague for the new imagery. I didn't quite have the "Parable with Skull" and peeing statues in front of the Kafka Museum positioned quite correctly.

    I noticed many of the images in the placemarks had become broken links and fixed them, while also increasing the size within the placemark window. Most folks run at higher resolutions these days, and I think I was overly cautious before.
