Statues are good because it reminds us of history. Some statues are made in honorarium to distinctive people,while others are for beauty aesthetics. Nevertheless,There are many monuments and statues all over the world,but there are some that are phenomenal and wierd.These statues below are wierd and at the same time phenomenal.
1) The Mustangs of Las Colinas, Texas, USA
This statue is unique. It is made of bronze and far larger than a life horse,even though it appears small in Pictures.

This statue is indeed refreshing.

This is the statute of a slender and frail Man carrying an obese woman on his shoulders,while the obese woman holds a balance of scale as the goddess of Justice and equality. The Danish sculptor Hena Galschiot symbolised the statue to be Africa and the Industrial world. Hmmm... I urge you to think deeply.
