Started the day of touring tulsa here and this was definitely the climax of our adventures. Am truly amazed by the symbolism of this statue and its beauty. It is a MUST GO if you are in town.

It was a fun stop for a business coworker looking to see the sights around Tulsa. Funny to take pictures with the giant statue.

I was expecting something more spectacular. Granted, it is a relatively big statue, but it’s placed awkwardly in front of the exhibition centre and with a small plaque to signify its historical value. If you have time, and a vehicle, see it. Otherwise there are...More

If driving by you would have to stop and take a picture as it is a most unusual statue. As a visitor to U.S. I made the effort to stop and see this unique landmark.
