DENVER – Ever since it was first installed at Denver International Airport, the 32-foot-tall blue “Mustang” has been the talk of the town, but a new addition is sure to get plenty of attention.
A crew is installing a seven-ton, 26-foot-tall concrete sculpture of an Egyptian god at the airport.
Anubis, a statue with a jackal-head, will be built south of the Jeppesen Terminal.
Although part of the lore of the 9,000-pound “Mustang” is that its creator, Luis Jiménez, was tragically killed while making the piece, Anubis may be even more notorious. He’s the Egyptian god of death and the afterlife.
It’s being put in to preview the Denver Art Museum’s King Tut exhibit.
The exhibit runs June 29 through Jan. 9, 2011, and Anubis will be standing guard during that time.

And again the video has been removed. Here is a (not so good ) replacement:
And here is the horse at Denver International Airport:
Maybe it symbolizes the Fourth Horse of the Apocalypse, although the color of the horse should be greenish.
Here is Revelation 6:8:
“I looked, and there before me was a “chloros” horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and death, and by the beasts of the earth.”
