Friday’s Findings: Statue of Decebalus

The Statue of Decebalus (Romanian: Statuia lui Decebal) is the largest rock sculpture in Europe and is located on the Danube River near the city of Or┼čova, Romania. It took twelve sculptors ten years to complete the statue, which is a whopping 131 feet tall!

This massive sculpture was made in honor of a man named Decebalus, who ruled as the King of Dacia from 87-106 A.D. He is considered a legendary hero in Romanian history.

The largest rock sculpture I’ve ever seen like this one is South Dakota’s Mount Rushmore, which is only 60 feet tall. I would love to see the Statue of Decebalus!

Have you ever seen a famous rock sculpture?
