Motherland is the tallest standing-figure statue in the world. This enormous statue is made up of concrete. It is situated at the Mamayev Hill outside Volgograd, in the former USSR. This statue was designed in the year 1967 by Yevgeni Vuchetich, in remembrance of the victory in the famous Battle of Stalingrad. The statue stands tall with a sword in her right hand. Right from the base to the tip of the sword, it measures approximately 270 feet.
