When most people think of famous statues, what comes to mind is probably statues like the Statue of Liberty or Michelangelo's David, perhaps even Christ The Redeemer, which towers over Rio De Janeiro. However, there are many more incredible statues in the world that are just as worthy of being famous. From the Giant Leshan Buddha in China to Italy's Appennine Colossus, these are some of the most amazing sculptures and cool statues that the world has to offer. (Source: All That's Interesting)

The people of Lithuania call this ghastly cloaked figure the Black Ghost. The creepy bronze statue clings to the pier while emerging from the water — looking ready to drag unsuspecting pedestrians into the underworld. However, as the much less-scary legend goes, this figure appeared to a castle guard named Hans von Heidi in 1595 to tell him the city's supplies of grain and timber were insufficient. Miraculously, von Heidi passed the message on, and the city set about increasing its stores of both, saving it from several years of hunger and shortage that followed. Have you ever been to Klaipeda, Lithuania?

4. With 50 bars (akin to jail bars) representing the 50th anniversary of Nelson Mandela's arrest, this shape shifting monument at the site of his capture in Howick, South Africa, is multi-dimensional and incredibly symbolic. The artist, Marco Cianfanelli, suggests the sculpture also brings about "the idea of many making the whole; of solidarity. It points to an irony as the political act of Mandela's incarceration cemented his status as an icon of struggle." The monument was unveiled on August 5, 2012. Have you ever been to Howick, South Africa?
