This list of 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 as well as any mast, spire, or other structure that extend higher than the tallest figure in the monument.

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 2019, the main table includes 130 statues of height 30 m (98 ft) or taller.
