Sometimes referred to as the “Shrine to Democracy”, Mount Rushmore National Memorial is centered around a sculpture carved into the granite batholith of the Black Hills of South Dakota. American Sculptor Gutzon Borglum created the sculpture's design and oversaw the project's execution from 1927 to 1941 with the help of his son Lincoln Borglum. This impressive and beautiful sculpture features the 60-foot heads of Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. The four presidents were chosen, to represent the birth, the growth, the development, and the preservation our United States. Have a beautiful Independence Day everyone! 🇺🇸 #4thofjuly #americathebeautiful #sculpture

Born hundreds of millions of years ago, the pristine white marble quarries of Northern Italy have provided the worlds greatest artists including Michelangelo with stone for well over a millennia. The striking beauty of the quarry, as seen here from above, is the beginning of a long journey from the mountain to the hands of the sculptor.
