This list of the tallest statues includes completed statues that are at least 30 meters tall, which was the assumed height of the Colossus of Rhodes. The height values in this list are measured to the highest part of the human (or animal) figure, but exclude the height of any pedestal (plinth), or other base platform.

The definition of statue for this list is a free-standing sculpture (as opposed to a relief), representing one or more people or animals (real or mythical), in their entirety or partially (such as a bust). Monuments that contain statues are included in this list only if the statue fulfills these and the height criteria.

Existing statues[edit]

As of 2018, the main table includes 129 statues of height 30 m (98 ft) or taller. The countries with entries in the list are:
