The residents of Jinzhou in Henan, China will soon be watched over by the country’s largest statue of the beloved Chinese warrior, Guan Yu.
The statue weighs 1,200 tonnes and stands 58m tall, and is said to be the heaviest statue in the world of the fabled general, reported People’s Daily.
In 2009, a similar statue was erected in Guan’s hometown in the Shanxi province. That one measures 61m tall, including a 19m tall pedestal and is smaller than Jinzhou’s.
