The statue of Decebalus is one of the amazing sculptures on earth. It is located near the town of Orsova, in southwestern Romania. It is done after one of the famous rulers of Romania, Decebalus. He was the last king of Dacia.
It is carved into the mountain rock which depicts the famous ruler. With a height of about 40 meters, it is the tallest rock sculpture in Europe. It can be reached by a boat ride but it can be seen from the road. It took nearly 10 years to carve.
One of the interesting facts about this is that it is not very old. The sculpting started around 1994 and completed on 2004. Another interesting fact is that it took only 12 sculptors to carve this beautiful piece of art.
The entire project was proposed and funded by one of the wealthiest Romanians ever, Constantin Dragan. He was one of the wealthiest Businessman of Romania. It is said that he spent one million USD on this project.
There is an inscription right under the carved face, which is written in Latin as DECEBALUS REX-DRAGAN FECIT
Or its English translation as King Decebal- Made by Dragan.
