This colossal sculpture features the faces of four influential American presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln, carved into the granite face of Mount Rushmore. Created by sculptor Gutzon Borglum and his son Lincoln Borglum, the project began in 1927 and was completed in 1941, attracting millions of visitors each year since its dedication.
