The Statue of Dacian king Decebalus is a 40-m high statue that is the tallest rock sculpture in Europe. It is located on the Danube’s rocky bank, near the city of Oraova, Romania. It was commissioned by Romanian businessman and historian Iosif Constantin Dragan and it took 10 years, from 1994 to 2004, for twelve sculptors to finish it. The final cost was over one million dollars.[citation needed] Under the face of Decebalus there is a Latin inscription which reads “DECEBALUS REX—DRAGAN FECIT” (“King Decebal—Made by Dragan”).
