There's a Replica of Mount Rushmore in China

(Photo China News)

The faces of the four American Presidents carved into Mount Rushmore, South Dakota are about 60 feet tall. This replica isn't quite as big, but it's still monumental in scale. It's located in a park in Chongqing, the capital of China from 1937 through 1945.

During those years, China was in a long and particularly bloody war with Japan. According to the website Dale in China, the Chinese government built the park to honor the Americans who helped defeat Japan.

The park also features small versions of the Statue of Liberty, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Rodin's The Thinker, the Eiffel Tower, the Sydney Opera House, the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence and what appears to Notre-Dame de Reims.

George Washington did not wear a wig, though they were popular in his time. He preferred his own hair. But now it appears that he enjoys a leafy, verdant mane.
