Mt. Rushmore, USA

Very very cool card!

The Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a monumental granite sculpture locate within the US Presidential Memorial, that represents the first 150 years of the history of the USA.
It consists of the sculptures of the heads of former US presidents: George Washington (1732–1799), Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826), Theodore Roosvelt (1858–1919), and Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865).

Well, it is a masterpiece indeed, to make such facial sculptures carved in stone, where they have all the facial features and do resemble their respective representatives. I admire people who are able to do such stuff...probably coz personally i totally suck at it :)

I tried to find a picture from the Richie Rich movie...there was the same sculpture there, except that it had the faces of Richie's family...not that its of any notable importance, just that this card made me recall that :)
