Dacian King Statue, Romania

In the “Iron Gates”, on the Romanian bank of the Danube is located the tallest rock sculpture in Europe. This impressive 40 metre high statue represents the Dacian king Decebalus. Contrary to what one would think, this statue is not a medieval masterpiece of art, it has been sculpted between 1994 and 2004 by twelve different sculptors commissioned by Iosif Constantin Drăgan, a Romanian businessman and historian.
