Rushmore

South Dakotah is famous for its four Presidents carved into Mt Rushmore. As impressive as the sculptures are, they could all fit into just the forehead of nearby Crazy Horse Memorial.

Sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski worked on both projects. In fact, it was his work on Mt Rushmore that resulted in his invitation to create Crazy Horse Memorial.

According to Wikipedia, each president was originally to be depicted from head to waist, but the project ran out of money before they could be completed.
