Santa Claus, Rotterdam the Netherlands 2001


But the unofficial name is Gnome ********, because he seems to have a sextoy in his hand rather than a Christmastree.

Cost: 280.000 euro!

London has a moving statue on an alleyway, set off by movement sensors. It leans, moves arms, and its clothes fly with the wind. It freaks alot of unknowing people at night, when it stops and looks straight at them...:
