The statue of Felipe IV in Madrid (1640) is similar, but I think it has three support points (the tail)...

Sculptures in Valle de los Caidos (near Madrid), a monument built by dictator Francisco Franco, using war and political prisoners as slaves (there is an estimation of 20.000 prisoners working in the construction period, between 1940 and 1958).
The actual number of prisoners who died during the construction is still unknown.

The cross is 150 meters high (300 meters from the crypt entrance)









In the cross there are eight huge sculptures:

back in Holy Week last April, I was able to visit The Kamay ni Hesus (Hand of Jesus) statue in Lucban, Quezon here in The Philippines. It is a 2-3 hour drive south of Manila.

In order to reach the statue, you have to climb up over 200 steps.

The statue is one of the largest in the world and on top, you have a good view of the town of Lucban.
