Suitable for copy'n'pasting into Google Earth:
49°27'16.04"N, 55°28'23.64"W

It's in a low-res area. Now matter how much you zoom in, you definitely won't be able to make it out.

Says in the article it's concrete. Still, pretty amazing, both the sculpture, and that it's on a stamp.

Fiberglass huh? Did Vivos build it? Don't see putting 2000 people in there and it's way above ground. No protection from fallout or ground shocks. does it go in the water after people board it?

In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming (of being featured on a Canadian postage stamp).
