Denver Airport Broncos Statue

March 9th 2009 06:03
Denver, Colorado - Airport Mustang Sculpture

This huge blue statue of the Denver Bronco's mascot (Thunder II) has finally being dedicated. Commissioned 16 years ago and standing at a colossal 32 feet tall, the project was already controversial when in 2005 the horse broke loose from a support in sculptor Luis Jiminez's studio and pinned him against the wall. He later died from his injuries on the way to hospital. His family were determined to finish the work in his honour.

With its unholy look, bright red eyes and story behind it the artwork has been dubbed the 'Airport Mustang from Hell' and it will be hard to shake the curse tag.


See pictures below of the Denver International Airport Mustang sculpture during both the day and night. (The second one is a very well done shot).
