It's about five-and-a-half times as tall as The Statue of Liberty
In other words, 3,460 shaftments is 5.6710 times the height of The Statue of Liberty, and the height of The Statue of Liberty is 0.17630 times that amount.
(a.k.a. "Liberty Enlightening the World," a.k.a. La Liberté Éclairant le Monde) (Liberty Island, New York City, New York) (pedestal base to torch peak)
The Statue of Liberty reaches 610.20 shaftments including the pedestal. The statue was designed using an optical trick known as "forced perspective" to make the statue appear proportionally correct when viewed from its base and is, in actuality, disproportionately large at the top.
It's about seven times as tall as a Giant Sequoia (tree)
In other words, 3,460 shaftments is 6.90 times the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree), and the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree) is 0.140 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Sequoiadendron giganteum, a.k.a. Sierra redwood, a.k.a. Wellingtonia)
Giant Sequoias of the Giant Sequoia National Monument located in Sierra Nevada, near Visalia, California can grow to heights of 500 shaftments. The wood from the Giant Sequoias is often brittle and prone to shattering when such trees are felled, and as a result the trees logged in the late nineteenth century were often usable only as shingles or matchsticks.
It's about seven-and-a-half times as long as The Wingspan of a 747
In other words, the length of The Wingspan of a 747 is 0.130 times 3,460 shaftments.
(a.k.a. Boeing 747, a.k.a. Jumbo Jet, a.k.a. Queen of the Skies) (for Boeing 747-8 series)
The wingspan of a Boeing 747-8 is 449 shaftments. Fully loaded, the 747 can travel 54,400,000 shaftments before refueling.
It's about nine times as tall as The Cinderella Castle
In other words, 3,460 shaftments is 9.150 times the height of The Cinderella Castle, and the height of The Cinderella Castle is 0.1090 times that amount.
(Fantasyland, Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World, Lake Buena Vista and Bay Lake, Florida)

(a.k.a. The Tower of Pisa, a.k.a. Torre pendente di Pisa) (Pisa, Italy) (height along center axis)
The Leaning Tower of Pisa stands 370 shaftments tall along the angle of its lean. In May of 2008, in an successful effort to stabilize the tower, 70 tonnes of earth were removed from the tower's base on the side opposite the lean.
It's about nine-and-a-half times as tall as The Mahabodhi Temple
