The Watcher Statue in The Nether.

New to the 1.2.5 update, statues were added as an uncommon drop from bosses. There is a statue for every boss:

They all seem to face south no matter which direction you place them from. This may be a bug. They can be placed anywhere and are the size of one block. They all have a similar texture to Coalstone except Parasecta who has a more reddish/brownish texture. If they are thrown onto the ground the entire drop moves in a circular motion.
