Mr. Stadnyk, at left, has been documented in medical records, and on various dates, to have a height of 253-257 centimeters. The variation is attributed to several factors including time of day. The lowest number converts to just under 8 feet 4 inches.

The man in the middle is his doctor (I believe his name is Bessler), who is a tall man in his own right. He has, for a number of years, been studying and treating, patients with disorders leading to exceptional height.

The building in the background is Stadnyk's home, which was built by his family in a Ukrainian village. Since the home does not conform to standard construction practices, it should not be relied upon to provide scale.
