Biggest bird sculpture in the world from India, List of 10 tallest statues
At 200 feet in length, 70 feet in height and with a wingspan of 150 feet, this is the biggest bird sculpture in the world. The colossal concrete structure in the heart of Kerala in India, called Jatayu Earth's Center, took six years to build. It was the brainchild of Indian filmmaker and sculptor Rajiv Anchal, who always dreamed of bringing the mythical bird Jatayu to life.
According to Hindu legend, Jatayu witnessed princess Sita being kidnapped by the demon king Ravana. When Jatayu tried to stop Ravana, he chopped off one of the bird's wings with his sword. In keeping with the story, the concrete version of Jatayu only has one wing. The fact that it's on its back with its talons curled up and its mouth open signals pain. The giant sculpture can be reached via a winding footpath or by cable car. A helicopter service can also be arranged.
Visitors can roam around the bird and scale its wings. There are also various rooms and exhibition spaces inside the sculpture. Guests can get a bird's eye view of the surrounding countryside via an observation deck located inside the animal's eyes. The area around the bird has been turned into an adventure eco-park with activities such as abseiling, zip-lining and rock climbing on offer.
