Echo Park Statue – Los Angeles CA

Description

This statue, entitled “Nuestra Reina de los Angeles” (“Our Queen of the Angels”) but known colloquially as “The Lady of the Lake,” was made in 1934 by Ada May Sharpless with funding from the Public Works of Art Project (PWAP). Rendered in poured concrete, it stands 14′ tall at the north end of the lake on a small peninsula. The damaged statue was put into storage on site in 1986, and after restoration reinstalled in 1999.

  1. I live in the L.A. house built by Ada May in 1940. She created a 2-story windowed living room as her studio, which remains as she built it.
    I recently uncovered a plaster or clay face in my basement and would like to get it evaluated. Can you assist me?
