The Beast of Bukhara.
Most tyrants that I know (and I've known a few in my time) tend to errect huge statues to express their power and reflect the love that the people have for their glorious leader. Some build huge palaces and vast public squares. Not so the Beast of Bukhara. He is a modest tyrant. He is satisfied by distributing his diminutive likeness around the globe. Here is The Beast as sculpted by Messers Perry. Adrian does look like this! It is uncanny.
