RoboCop Miner Statue

A cool-looking statue of a miner, which can be found in front of a medical center for New Mexico miners. Whoever dubbed this statue the "RoboCop Miner" inadvertently saddled it with a nickname that promises to befuddle many (it looks nothing like RoboCop), which somehow makes this out-of-the-way memorial even cooler.
