Things that are much smaller in real life

#1) The White House: the home of the arguably most powerful man in the world looks much larger on TV than it really is.

#2) The statue of liberty: symbol of freedom and a fresh start for so many immigrants, the lady’s symbolic meaning dwarfs its actual size.

Need a looking glass?

#3) Probably the most disappointing one: Fredrik Reutersw√§rd’s statue of the knotted gun at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.

It's all a matter of perspective
