Airport Mustang from Hell

A large blue statue of the Denver Bronco's mascot stands in the median between the inbound and outbound traffic lanes for the Denver International Airport's main terminal.

It's got fiery red lights for eyes which give it a fierce/evil look as you ride by.

The Blue Horse from Hell arrived on Feb. 11, 2008, years overdue and several hundred thousand dollars over budget.

Mustang from Hell Statue

Finally, 16 years after its commissioning, the Mustang statue at Denver International Airport has been officially dedicated.

The project was already behind schedule when the colossal (32 feet tall) sculpture killed its sculptor back in 2006, so completion and installation were delayed.

[Robert MacLeay, 07/10/2008]

Luis Jiminez's mustang statue would have been controversial even if it hadn't killed him. The 32-ft. tall fiberglass, unholy blue horse with red eyes had long ago been commissioned for the entrance of Denver International Airport. The horse broke loose from a support in the sculptor's studio in 2006, pinning him against a wall. Enroute to the hospital, he died from his injuries. The Jiminez family finished the sculpture, but the "curse" element will be hard to shake off as time goes on for this one...
