Bluecifer has a new pal--the God of the Dead.
Sculptures outside Denver International Airport already included a 30-foot-tall, rearing blue mustang with glowing red eyes, nicknamed Bluecifer by snickering locals. Now the airport has another statue: a 26-foot tall replica of the Egyptian God of the Dead.
Workers installed the seven-ton replica of Anubis on Wednesday next to the main terminal to promote an upcoming King Tut exhibit at the Denver Art Museum. The statue has promoted the exhibit in other cities too. Anubis will stay through the summer.
