CHALLENGE: Monumental

Handy pixelgrapher zi-double challenges you to pixel a historical memorial or monument from your town or country. No more than that, either - just the monument, no surrounding scene. It has to be a structure that only serves as a monument - so, for example, no churches turned monument. Make sure you post a reference link in the description so that your entry can be compared to the real thing.
Isometric work is encouraged but not required.

Colours: 32 Max
Canvas size: 200 x 200 Max
Transparency: Yes
Animation: No
Reference link required!

CHALLENGE RULES

  • Only new pixels allowed.
  • Open to all members.
  • Posting WIPs in this thread or in new threads in the WIP section is highly encouraged, but ONLY SUBMIT YOUR FINAL ART.

CHALLENGE JUDGING

  • Every Sunday at midnight (12AM Pacific) the previous week's entries are judged.
  • Every week a new voting poll will be posted for previous week's entries.
  • Winner announced the following week.

CHALLENGE PRIZES/GOODIES

  • Top three finishers will receive an award displayed in your PJ gallery profile for all to see and envy.

In my city there is a church that serves as monument only. actually its just the tower, the church build next to it fell apart. So it has no other serves now (except being a clock). Does this count? Its very much the icon of my city and well known in my country..

Sorry, I yet haven't understood; an old church of 1100, today not more consecrated  and only considered a monumental complex in my city, can be used like reference?

No more than that, either - just the monument, no surrounding scene

I thought we didn't have to?
But what should I add then?

Don't add anything. The rules state:
 
"just the monument, no surrounding scene"
 
If you added a background you wouldn't be eligable. ;D
