Giant Figure Small Building Souvenirs

The giant figure towers over buildings. Is it King Kong? Perhaps Godzilla? No, just a strangely large human invading what could have been a perfectly good souvenir building. Curse these souvenir designers who focused more on the figure than the architecture. What is the significance of the person? A pot metal clock, a souvenir from Barcelona, features an enormous female figure (perhaps a queen?) lounging in front of some much smaller buildings. A gun-carrying Minute Man dwarfing a New England building and a cloaked German woman carrying what might be a large stein of frothy beer out of a tiny town. What do they mean? All I know is, I don’t like ‘em. Oversized bunnies are bad enough. What do you think about these?
