Mt. Rushmore, Pearland

Mt. Rushmore, Pearland by Finijo

Work took me to Pearland and just off of 610 at 288 there is a series of six presidential busts. It is a strange display of Americana on the side of the freeway in a muddy field. There is no marker that I found to explain the statues, but there are plenty of empty beer cans and used condoms. It never occurred to me that that a grouping of dead white guys could inspire lust, but apparently it can.
Mr. Rushmore 5 Busts
This photo does not show all of the Presidents, but it is a little closer up and gives the scale based on the average sized doors that are built into the shoulders of the presidents. From left to right are: George H.W. Bush, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy.
