The Crazy Horse Memorial is the world largest mountain craving in the Black Hills of South Dakota, US. The Crazy Horse, an Oglala Lakota warrior, riding a horse and pointing into the distance was commissioned by Lakota Chief Henry Standing Bear to sculptor Korczak Ziólkowski. The work was started in 1948 and has been continued by Korczak family since his death in 1982.
When completed the Crazy Horse mountain carving will be 641 feet long by 563 feet high. It may become the world’s largest sculpture, as well as the first non-religious statue to hold this record since 1967.
