Crazy Horse Memorial - South Dakota

3D model description

Crazy Horse Memorial is in the Black Hills of South Dakota, very near to Mt. Rushmore. It commemorates the Lakota leader, Crazy Horse, he is depicted riding a horse, and pointing to the horizon.. It's construction started in 1948 by Korczak Ziolkowski, and when it is finished, it may be the biggest sculpture in the world! For comparison, the heads of the presidents in Mt. Rushmore are only about half of Crazy Horse's. (Wikipedia)

At MiniWorld, we want to celebrate Thanksgiving Day with this free model, show us pictures if you print it or buy it! Don't forget to check out our other models!


I modeled in parametric, it was a real challenge to model the face, and I came up with an easy way to "sculpt" the mountain - it's fun to push software in a direction that is not necessarily the one it was made for!


During a trip to South Dakota, I visited both Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse memorial, I can't believe nobody knows about the second! That's why I decided to model this for the world to see. I learned a lot about Native American culture by visiting the nearby museum too.

The idea of MiniWorld originated from a visually-impaired friend who asked me if I could use 3D printing to help her and others "see" the world - with miniature models, they can understand shapes and sizes of the most famous landmarks and travel with their hands.
MiniWorld is the collection of 3D printed landmarks from around the world!

All my things I model myself by hand and brain, please give credit. It's all about spreading culture!
