One of the most famous native Americans 'Geronimo' This is photograph that I took with a 35mm camera and you can, when enlarged pick out the truck just to the side of the face.
In the gap underneath is a digger.
There are trips to be up close and personal and I believe that you can get hundreds of people along the proposed outstretched arm.
The horses head painted into the rock formation gives a further indication of the size of the undertaking.
You know since 1998 it looks no different??

Crazy Horse Memorial, the world’s largest sculpture, now in progress, is located in the Black Hills of South Dakota on US Highway 16/385 just 17 miles southwest of Mount Rushmore. The work was begun in 1948 by sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski at the request of Native Americans. Korczak died in 1982. His wife, Ruth, and their family continue the project working with the Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation.

The Memorial includes the Indian Museum of North America, the Native American Cultural Center which was dedicated at the 1996 Native American Day celebration, the sculptor’s studio, as well as a new 40,000-square-foot Orientation Center and theaters opened in May 2000. Many Native American artists and crafts people create their artwork and visit with guests at the Memorial during the summer season.
