Fight Against Maturity

Crazy Horse Memorial. Still chipping away. PS: That face is 87 feet tall.

The Associated Press:


Sixty years after the first blast signaled work had begun on the world’s largest mountain carving, the project is far from finished.

The carved face of Crazy Horse has been completed and a welcome center and museum are open, but the carving of the Lakota warrior’s body, his horse, and a planned university and medical training center for American Indian students are still years away.

Ruth Ziolkowski, widow of sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski, who started the memorial on June 3, 1948, won’t predict when it will be done.
