A very unusual occurrance! This is a statue in Mexico dedicated to a badman of his times, Poncho Villa. Evidently enough people liked him to pay for the statue. He successfully raided the small southern New Mexico town of Columbus killing some and demolished buildings. General Pershing took the US troops into Mexico to find and capture him but was unsuccessful. I used my Canon XTi.
