Tacky? I think not! Its a tribute to this Countries great leaders. Its the only man made creation that will be around at least 3000 years or more after the Human race stops existing.

I'm sure they will be some prehistoric earthmounds and the scars of open cast mines lasting longer than Mount Rushmore, but anyway.. What happened to the idea of adding Ronald Reagan?

Willing to bet not! Maintenance is on going at the site. Without it, within a decade or two the faces would be unrecognizeable.
