Little while back, World of Warcraft developers Blizzard moved into new offices. As part of the move, employees were given little statues. The building itself, however, got a big statue.

Because they are Blizzard, WETA - the special effects team behind Lord of the Rings - were commissioned to build a 12-foot-tall statue of an Orc atop a big, snarling wolf to let visitors to the building know that this is the house that WoW built. It's the same statue employees were given for the move, only, well...as you can clearly see, bigger. And heavier.

Epic, but you'd think the employees might have preferred to receive some of the funds in their pay, instead of a statue... what am I saying? They would have simply pooled the funds and bought this anyway.
