Despite criticism, Denver airport's 'Devil Horse' sculpture likely to stay Denver International Airport

Denver residents can now petition the city to get rid of "Mustang," a controversial statue at Denver International Airport.

After five years of either creeping out, intriguing or delighting travelers, the “Devil Horse” of Denver International Airport, as some critics call it, is getting a new round of attention, but it looks like it's going to stay.

Behold "Blue Mustang," a 32-foot, 9,000-pound, electric blue, anatomically correct fiberglass sculpture of a rearing horse situated along Peña Boulevard, the main road to the airport.

Its fierce looks and glowing red eyes have earned it nicknames such as "Blucifer," "Satan's Steed" and "Blue Stallion of Death.” Luis Jiménez, the artist who created it, died when a piece of the sculpture fell on his leg and severed an artery, adding to the exhibit’s eerie status. http://www.nbcnews.com/travel/itineraries/despite-criticism-denver-...
