LEHI, Utah (ABC4 News)- With the 150th-anniversary celebration of the Transcontinental Railroad, a Utah man has sculpted a 3,000-pound bison that will be unveiled on May 10th.

Micheal Coleman spent nearly a year building the sculpture made of clay of steel. Micheal told ABC4 he used almost 1000 pounds of clay to build the massive buffalo. “Distant Thunder,” the buffalo represents the awesome sound of the wild, majestic bison and “Iron Horse” locomotives that united the east and west coasts on the high desert terrain of the Utah Territory.

The Spike 150 celebration will host a number of events and public unveiling of the 3000-pound bison sculpture will be donated to the Golden Spike National Historical Park on May 10th.
