Headless Historical Statues Are Just The Tiniest Bit Creepy

From 1920: the statue of Abraham Lincoln being installed in the Lincoln Memorial Building in Washington, D.C.  From the accompanying caption:

“Originally designed to be 10 feet tall, the likeness was 19 feet high when completed, so that the cavernous chamber would not dwarf the statue.”
