You've got to admit that there is a little bit of a resemblance but no, the statue was erected

According to a satirical Facebook post, the statue presented online as a giant coronavirus. An image that many of us have seen online and in the news lately. If it's not a giant coronavirus then what is it?

Some speculate that it's a giant football helmet while others claim it's supposed to be an old underwater mine from World War 2.

The statue is called Panetariummonetarium and was created by Serge Onnen in 2009. It's actually filled with kaleidoscopes with coins inside. The sign next to the statue states that out monetary system is far more complicated than our solar system.
