China's Mount Rushmore Has Green Leafy Hair

Somebody please cut George Washington's leafy locks! He's in need of a trim. That is, before things get out of hand.

This is the Mount Rushmore replica in Shaping Park in Chongqing, China. The park has been around for years now, and according to website Dale in China, it's apparently dedicated to the Americans who helped fight against the Japanese in the Second Sino-Japanese War.

Besides the faux Mount Rushmore, there are other small-scale replicas in the park:
