THE SANTA CLAUS STATUE
"…located in Santa Claus Land, Indiana, and dedicated to Santa Claus, himself, is one of the most often photographed statues in the country."
More photographed than the Statue of Liberty? Actually, his right arm is raised, just like Miss Liberty. Stick a torch in it, a tabula ansata under his left arm, and you’ve got the Liberty Claus!
