India Unveils World’s Tallest Sculpture - "The Statute of Unity"

The world's tallest statue has been unveiled in India.  Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled "The Statue of Unity" which was a tribute to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, an Indian independence leader who was crucial in uniting a fractured country.  It is 182 meters or 597 feet.

The mammoth statue, is almost twice the height of Statue of Liberty according to New York Times.  It’s the equivalent of almost two American football fields stacked vertically, minus the end zones.

The statue was designed by Ram V. Sutar, 93, who is among history’s most prolific monumental sculptors.
