Mt Rushmore with the Heads of 4 Presidents

In this view of Mt Rushmore, we see the size of the mountain, the heads of the four Presidents and the rock fragments resulting from the sculpting.

Mt. Rushmore is located in the Black Hills of South Dakota. This image depicts the morning sun shining on the sculptures of (from left-to-right) George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.

Work on the presidential memorial began in 1927 and ended in 1941. Gutzon Borglum, the principal sculptor, carved the presidential faces between 1934 and 1939.
