Excellent, Ms Eva! The word "larger" was a hint since Mount Rushmore is about 60 feet tall. Borglum loved Lincoln and even named one of his sons after him. Borglum, who lived after Lincoln's time, studied the 1860 Volk life mask and numerous photographs of Lincoln. He observed, "I have never found a better head than his, and I have never seen a face that was so mature, so developed, in its use of his expression."

One of the statues is in a building at the City College of New York, and another is in the crypt under the U.S. Capitol Rotunda in D.C.
