That's really cool. One of these days I'll make time to try out Eve. You can show me around the universe.

im guessing the three races because thats the only thing i can connect in my mind (ship designs and the statue pillars)

for example:
starting from the left

gallente, caldari and amarr, first one is gallente because their ship and station designs incorporate both smooth surfaces and hard angles, second is caldari due to their ships' flat surfaces and jagged appearance and the third is amarr because their ships are mostly fluid and smooth

Wow, that's pretty cool. What does the statue represent? Is it game related or just abstract?

CCP, developers of EVE Online, plan to erect a monument more than 16 feet tall in the city of Reykjavik, Iceland to thank players for their time and contributions to the long-running starship MMO. That's like bonus XP for life.

The monument will be erected and placed upon a half-meter tall pedestal which will list the main characters of all active EVE Online players. A press release announcing the planned monument states that the active player list will be captured on March 1, 2014, so if you want to stand up and be accounted for, now's the time to strap back into the captain's chair. CCP will also include the names of EVE players who have passed away.

Hilmar Veigar Petursson, CEO of CCP said in a statement that, "Honoring [the players] as part of a timeless monument shows how virtual lives and adventures have reached a new level of meaning and impact that weaves into and enhances those that happen in this world. We are humbled by all those that have joined us on the journey so far, and it's our hope that this physical piece will continue to gather energy and relevance into decades to come, becoming like EVE Online and outliving us all."

How does your favorite game or game series thank you, the player? In-game items? Bonus XP weekends? Raffle contests? How about a monument to your honor and glory in the heart of a country's capital city? (cont.)
