The 20th century's most famous sculpture grouping, Mount Rushmore depicts the heads of Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Lincoln, blasted out of the face of the mountain between 1927 and 1941 by teams of workers under the direction of sculptor Gutzon Borglum, at a total cost of just under $ 1 million. The heads are carved to the proportion of men 465' tall. Originally, Borglum planned to carve the bodies from the waist up, but only Washington's lapels were completed.
