Blucifer is a nickname that locals use for “Blue Mustang,” a large fiberglass artistic sculpture of a mustang. The statue stands 32 feet tall and weighs in at 9,000 lbs.
Installed in 2008 about 15 years later than it was commissioned. It was delayed because the statue killed its creator, Luis Jiménez at age 65.
Blue Mustang is the original name for this sculpture. Blucifer is a nickname that was given by the locals due to the demonic look and deadly history of the statue.
In early sketches of the sculpture, the mustang was colored yellow and even pink. No one really knows why it was painted blue, but there were theories.
Blucifer has a very aggressive stance. The horse is rearing up on his two back legs, with eyes that glow red all hours of the day.
