India's planned Statue of Unity

The Statue of Liberty is one of the most recognizable statues in the world, but soon it'll be dwarfed by the sheer size of India's planned Statue of Unity. The new statue of Sardar Patel, the first home minister of independent India will be the largest in the world — its planned height of 600 feet means it'll be just about twice as tall as the Statue of Liberty. According to AFP, the meta statue will take about four years to complete and cost an estimated $300 million, to be funded through public funds and private donations.
