NO STATUE OF LIMITATIONS: Tulsa missed its chance to have the tallest free-standing bronze statue in the world when “The American,” a statue of an Indian Warrior, never got 0% the ground in north Tulsa. That won’t be the case for a 49-foot granite statue of the Buddhist goddess Quan Am. The Tulsa Board of Adjustment approved plans by the Tam-Bao Buddhist Temple, 16933 E. 21st St., to erect the statue. At 57 feet, Quan Am would be about 3 feet shorter than the landmark praying hands at Oral Roberts University.
