The Biggest Man In The World (Sort Of)

The largest human figure in the world is the Long Man of Wilmington, at 231 feet 6 inches tall (that’s about 70 meters). It stands on the edge of the downs near Eastbourne, in England, and holds a staff in each of his raised hands.

No one knows who made the figure, or why. Even the age is debated. It could have been first cut by a prehistoric tribe, or as late as the 1700s.
