This one is creepy, the moving statue behind Tate Modern - it moves slightly when you approach via movement sensors (eg turning its head to look at you). Scary on a dark night

The tallest statue in the world is Buddha statue at Spring Temple, China.






The Buddha is standing on 25 m (82 ft) pedestal which adds extra meters to the statue itself (153 m/ 502 ft in total). Moreover the hill on which the statue is placed has been reshaped and two additional pedestals have been formed. As a result the Buddha's total height is 208 m (682 ft).
