Unstructured Statuary

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

The Sagalassos Archaeological Research Project has reported the discovery of the remains of a gigantic statue of the Roman emperor Hadrian (famous, among other things, for the construction of the eponymous wall).

The statue in question is estimated to have been nearly five meters high. Even by modern standards, that's fairly enormous. When you consider the effort that would have been required to construct and erect it, and the ego that would have demanded it, one can not help but to hear echoes of Ozymandias.
