The intriguing Garuda Wisnu Kencana is a well-known cultural park in Bali. This imposing attraction features a colossal yet still incomplete statue that may be seen in fragments. Designed by Nyoman Nuarta, a renowned artist the statue depicts the Hindu deity Vishnu, astride his mount, the celestial winged Garuda. If the statue is completed, it will rise to a lofty 479 feet making it the largest statue on the globe. This enormous construction will require no less than 4,000 tonnes of copper and brass.
Although the statue remains unfinished it is still an impressive sight and will capture the imagination of the visitor. The statue’s head and body may be seen resting on a high platform, which may be accessed by ascending a lengthy stairway. The head and broad shoulders of Garuda have been placed on a lower resting place, its tremendous proportions always awing the visitor. Meanwhile Vishnu’s huge hands may be seen at a separate location in a different part of the park. Hinduism is a vital part of Balinese culture and it plays a significant part in the local lifestyle.
