Gigant statues all over the world

The greatest statue of Jesus Christ is today in Indonesia, but that of Rio is most famous that is why you see it here.
Other modern gigant statue is in Japan, Ushiku and is the statue of Buddha.
It's a fascination of "gigantismus", maybe. Or of dinosaurus-games.

But in the ancient times, who were the protagonists of the great statues?

Ah, did you know, that the gigant statues of Buddhas in Afganistan will be restored?
And the statues of Pasqua are endangered and many of them destroyed?

Maybe the most significant of all these statues is Maya-altar. Was it made to sacrifice human hearts?
