That seemed like a gigantic waste of money and effort as it was. I'm sure people who followed commandments against idolatry will take more meaning into this. I pretty much don't care either way of course. A lightning strike during a heavy storm of a gigantic statue doesn't surprise me.
But it does mean that only the anatomically correct horse sign and the building for testing elevators (as I call it) are on that route as sources of amusement to see on the side of the highway now in addition to mocking the silly statue.
