Kim Il-Sung

North Korea's former dictator, Kim Il-Sung (Kim Jong-Il's father) is held in very high esteem, as shown by this absolutely gigantic bronze statue of the "Eternal Leader" who died in 1994.

This ground level photo should give you an idea of the sheer scale of the monument, where couples visit to lay a wreath just before they get married.
