Amazing facts-Wooden giant

This is really world largest wooden sculptures which may amaze you and the beauty of sculpture is also too good. The power of a wood structure is defined in a striking new edifice.

A wood canopy of six “parasols” has been erected in Seville, Spain. This Metropol Parasol, as is formally known, is built of 3,400 wooden parts, is over 90 feet tall almost 500 feet long. The structure is made of interlocking pieces of wood held together mostly with glue and with metal clamps. Costing an estimated 130 million Euros and built over the course of five years, the structure is designed as an urban icon to draw attention to Seville, and reclaim an underutilized urban area. Restaurants and shops are embedded in the towers and below the canopy. A view walkway crowns the top.
