The Last Three, by Gillie and Marc Schattner (Astor Place, New York City)

"Inspired by the world’s final three Northern White Rhinos, Sudan and his infertile daughters Najin and Fatu, the husband-and-wife duo conceptualized the piece as an ode to the species." (Sudan died on March 18, 2018, at the age of 45)

10 Unintentionally Horrifying Statues of Famous People

Having a statue erected in your likeness sounds like it would be an honor. But when the end result leaves you looking disfigured, soulless, or otherwise terrifying for all eternity, it's worth considering that sometimes it's not the thought that counts.

I'm so glad you added the link - I had no idea what this was supposed to represent. The sculptor definitely missed the mark. (It is supposed to show a pitcher in motion throwing a ball.) It looks more like a remembrance of the thalidomide tragedy.
