This is a major disappointment. The original artist tasked to carve a statue of Rev. Martin Luther King jr. backed out over artistic differences. He said that they wanted something that was too ostentatious for such a humble man. He felt that MLK wouldn't want a 30 ft tall statue of himself. So instead a Chinese artist was hired. Martin Luther King memorial made in China - Telegraph I think it is a great rendering....but please. Can't we keep anything from being outsourced anymore. BTW, some are saying that it looks more like Mao then MLK. You be the judge.
