24k Gold Wash over Solid Brass Three-Dimensional Limited Edition Red Giftboxed with Historical Informational Insert This year’s ornament celebrates Tulsa’s beloved Golden Driller. Towering 67 feet tall and weighing 43,000 pounds, he stands before the main entrance to the Expo Center. His right hand rests on an authentic oil derrick from Seminole, OK. First introduced in 1953 for the international Petroleum Exposition, and again in 1959, the Driller became so popular that he was renovated and permanently installed at the 21st St. and Pittsburg Ave. site. His final refurbishing (he’s made of plaster and concrete over an angle-iron base) and coat of gold paint was in 1979. The front piece shows an oil pump, symbol of Tulsa’s rich petroleum heritage.
