The Crazy Horse monument

Facts about the Crazy Horse mountain carving near Custer, S.D.When completed, the likeness of warrior Crazy Horse will sit astride his stallion, his left arm, almost as long as a football field, outstretched, pointing to his Sioux burial grounds.

The three-dimensional sculpture will be 563 feet high and 641 feet long--taller than the Washington Monument, the largest Pyramid at Giza or the Great Sphinx and almost twice the size of the Statue of Liberty.
