  1. Lotta eye candy there! The North Korean one (let's say, 1/3 down the page) has a ... a communist family gazing at the sun? Kind of reminds me of some statue you posted here once long ago, a mother, father, and son--maybe sumthin' to do with boy scouts?

  2. Yeah, the Scout memorial....weird one that! This is a great collection of obelisks....in France alone there are many monumental obelisks, not counting the war memorials. It would be a massive undertaking to document all those. Also, some of the photos aren't really obelisks per se, but nonetheless, a lot of momnuments have been inspired by the form. We could add a few to their collection of photos!
