The Largest Equestrian Statue in the World

Post by mtmynd » November 23rd, 2010, 2:22 pm

The largest statue of its kind. The Equestrian was painstakingly created in nearly ten years by John Sherill Houser and with his son, Ethan Taliesin Houser along with many assisting in this never-before done sculpture of this size. The 36-foot-tall sculpture weighs 17 tons and rests on an 8-foot base. It currently is at the El Paso International Airport.
