With the 2009 update came Tall Monuments. Using the binoculars from ground level will show only Tall Monuments, not short ones. In order to correctly identify them as being tall, you must get at least 2 blocks away, and use your binoculars. If it is a text will appear saying:
"Scanning the skyline, you can see: a tall monument."
It would appear that any sculpture on top of a tall pillar will result in the monument being tall.
