When you stop to think about it, it’s kind of incredible all of the things we humans have immortalized in bronze. From the statue of Columbo in Budapest, Hungary (a personal favorite, see here), to Bosco the Dog Mayor in Sunol, California, the world is rich with incredible bronze monuments that are beloved by locals, but not necessarily world-famous.

The list really does go on and on. There’s the crowned goat of Killorglin, Ireland, known as King Puck, symbol of the festival of the same name. There’s Chicago’s bronze poop fountain. The “Bronze Fonz” in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, will most definitely make you say, “Ayyyyyyy!” And the bronze ear of Milan, Italy, was once a working doorbell of sorts. We’re certain there are many more out there, and we need your help to celebrate them.

Fill out the form below to tell us about the best bronze statue where you live, and if you’ve got one, email an Instagram-ready picture of it to eric@atlasobscura.com, with the subject line, “Incredible Bronze.” We’ll publish a collection of our favorite submissions in an upcoming article. Help us immortalize your favorite statue all over again!
