Tupac Shakur Statue
Stone Mountain, Georgia
Bronze Tupac, life-size, stands atop a granite block in the middle of a spritzing fountain shaped like a cross. It was unveiled in 2005, on the ninth anniversary of his death-by-gunfire. It's the centerpiece of the Peace Garden at the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts, which is run by Tupac's mom.
Tupac is shown wearing a suit and a cross and carrying a Bible. The inscription in the pedestal quotes Tupac: "I guarantee that I will spark the brain that will change the world." Some have complained that all of the cross-and-Bible iconography is a bit much.
Theories abound as to who killed Tupac, and some believe that, like Elvis, he's still alive -- waiting for the right moment to reenter the spotlight. If that's true, then the Tupac statue would be a good place to find him, since he would probably stop by to check it out from time to time.
