The biggest gift ever given
In October 1886, France gave the United States a huge gift: the Statue of Liberty. The statue was built to celebrate the centennial of the American Declaration of Independence while strengthening the friendly relationship between the two countries. The famous New York monument weighs 204 tons and measures about 93 meters high. In addition, the statue has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1984.
The most expensive tree in the world
Since 2010, the world record for the most expensive tree has been held by the Emirates Palace luxury hotel in Abu Dhabi. The price of the tree was about $11 million. The 13-meter-high giant cost, by himself $10,000, which is already an astronomical amount. In fact, it was the decorations based on it that increased its price tenfold. A total of 181 diamond, pearls, emerald, sapphire, and other precious stones adorned this tree. Look at the masterpiece!

The design was connected by 48 km of electrical cable. Do you think astronauts admired his creation from space?
