or just more than 3 times the 5’ 11” height of the shortest Moroni Statue.The smallest upright Statue, carved by LaVar Wallgren, was deliberately made to be the average height of a man: 5 feet 11 inches. Though the Nauvoo weather vane could arguably be considered the shortest measured in any direction, as it was about 3 feet tall and about 5 feet long.
Often times the Jordan River Statue is quoted as being the Tallest at 20′ tall. However, toe to crown the statue is only 15 feet, and to arrive at the 20 foot number you need to include not only the ball it stands on, but the ornamentation under the ball. Using that method of measurement, the Draper Temple statue would be about 21 – 22 feet making it taller. The Draper Statue is Quilter’s 1985 statue, measuring in at 10′ 6″ tall, and the gilt spire it stands on is taller than it is, which is where the 21 – 22 foot estimate comes from.
