Day 7

Crazy Horse Memorial is the largest sculpture in the world. That’s a big statement to make, but it is true. It is impossible to grasp the scale of this monument by looking at a photo. In fact standing there looking up at the mountain you still cannot appreciate the size of this sculpture.  The fact that the Mt. Rushmore carvings would fit in the area that will be Crazy Horse’s hair gives you a good idea of how big it is.

We planned to spend about 2 hours there and ended up spending 5 hours. The whole site is dedicated to the Native Americans of all tribes. The reception center is a museum of all things relating to Native Americans. We took a bus tour to the base of the mountain and saw the working backside of the project.

It will be many years, even generations before it will be completed. I hope the commitment to the work does not diminish.

Here are a few photos.
