Crazy Horse Statue, Black Hills, SD
Korczak Ziolkowski's plaster model for the carving of Crazy Horse Mountain. It is the largest carved statue in the world. Just the 60 foot high face of Crazy Horse is large enough to hold the entire carving of Mount Rushmore.
Here is the statue and mountain seen from about one mile away. The first blast beginning this carving was in 1948. Work continues by seven of Korczak's ten children who have become skilled carvers.
