Mount Rushmore National Memorial

Mount Rushmore National Memorial

Did You Know : Work of Art

Mount Rushmore represents the largest work of art on Earth. Each face is 60 feet high, compared to the head on the Statue of Liberty, which is only 17 feet tall. 

Amazingly, there were no deaths and only a couple of injuries during the entire period of carving at Mount Rushmore. This is a remarkable safety record considering the workers regularly used dynamite and heavy equipment.
