Le Knobeliske is a large sculpture consisting of a tall obelisk standing upright, and two smaller square shapes positioned askew on both sides of the obelisk, making the crude shape of male genitalia. The sculpture was presented to Liberty City in 2007 (a year before Grand Theft Auto IV's events took place) by a C. Shutchomout, according to a plaque on its plinth.
The sculpture's name is a portmanteau of the words obelisk and knob.
It is situated in Middle Park, by the Pizza Restaurant. The statue is the only one in the game that has the be ability to be broken, which could indicate that it is made of a fragile material. However in GTA Chinatown Wars it cannot be broken.

- In the mission Meltdown, it plays a rather important role, since Luca Silvestri, Joseph DiLeo and Johnny Barbosa go through the statue before crashing their Lokus to the floor below, while escaping from Niko Bellic.
- The artist's name is an obvious play on the phrase 'see, shut your mouth.'
