The roadside attraction was created by Wade Leslie. He started a model of it in 2000 then moved into the larger than life version that stands overlooking the highway. The statue is 46-feet tall (over 50 feet tall if you include the base). It is made of wire mesh, rebar, steel pipe, and expanding insulation foam that has been carved, fiber-glassed, sanded, primed, and painted. Overall the giant native american statue weighs over 15,000 pounds,and features 105 feathers in the headdress and 37 feathers on his spear and has the Oklahoma state flag within his shield (source).
On site you’ll also find a tiny chapel and a big boy statue on a pole.
