Prometheus Statue at Vidraru Dam

The ancient Greek Titan guards this massive dam holding a lightning bolt to symbolize electricity. 

The Vidraru arch dam on the bank of the Argeş River in Romania is an engineering jewel. Built in 1966 to create hydroelectricity, it was the fifth largest dam in Europe at the time. It required 42 kilometers of tunnels, over a million hard rocks extracted from underground and nearly a million cubic meters of concrete to build, plus the loss of about 80 builders’ lives.
