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.
