33 of the Most Stunning Sculptures Across the Globe

Themed Collections

Some of the statues on this list are superstars: the Griffin statue served as a backdrop of BBC drama Merlin, Anish Kapoor’s Cloud Gate has become synonymous with Chicago, and The Great Big Fork of Vevey has brought fame to an otherwise small, unassuming town.

Whether it be the postmodern, intricately designed curves of the sculpture in front of the Berlinische Galerie or a majestically proportioned statue of Jesus Christ, all of these sculptures offer a real sense of immersion.
