Ozymandias on the Plains - Marker

Description: Photograph of the marker located near the sculpture "Ozymandias on the Plains." Marker is covered in graffiti and similar style as other Texas State Historical Association Markers, but lacks identifying information. The plaque on the marker reads: 'In 1819, while on their horseback trek over the Great Plains of New Spain, Percy Bysshe Shelley and his wife Mary Shelley (author of Frankenstein), came across these ruins. Here Shelley penned his immortal lines: I met a traveller from an antique land Who said: "Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand, Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown, And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command, Tell that its sculptor well those passions read Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, The hand that mock them, and the heart that fed; And on the pedestal, these words appear: My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings; Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair! Nothing beside remains. Round the decay Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare The lone and level sands stretch far away." (1819) The Visage (or face) was damaged by students from Lubbock after losing to Amarillo in a competition, a stone cast of it will be replaced when it is ready, the original is on display now in the Amarillo Museum of Natural History. Souvenir Hunters have scraped off the bottom of the pedestal, but archaeologists have determined it was as Shelly described it.'
