    just to be clear they didn't make it in China only because it was cheaper. it's not like there was an American mountain carver available at double the price.

    whens the last time the US has done something like this? The Crazy Horse memorial guy died I can't even think of another American that does this kind of work.

    the artist is Chinese, yes but also excellent at what he does, and had experience making these huge sculptures for their gov't. We should be able to purchase quality wherever it is made, that's the free market.
