LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A new piece of artwork is coming to the valley!

A full size Colombian mammoth will soon be on display at the Tule Springs Fossil Beds.

What makes the piece of art so special besides its size? Volunteers collected trash to put it all together.

The mammoth is 23 feet tall, 40 feet long and 8 feet wide.

The skeleton structure weighs around three tons.
