The bigest is a statue, the less quality it has.

not necessarily, i feel that the statue of liberty, Christ the Redeemer are icons that a known the world over. the motherland is calling is a fantastic statue that is high quality and looks like a normal statue that would be in a town square just because its massive dosent mean it has less quality.

i also chose the giant buddha statue because it was carved out of a cliff face and is very old, it took great skill to construct and is a marvel.
