Lady of the Lake: "My Damn Hands Don't Match"

New, 10 comments

Although it's hard to match a hand. As pointed out earlier this week, the Lady of the Lake has a new hand and it looks to be a tad thicker than the existing one (arrow points to new hand). According to the Echo Park Historical Society, the Echo Park statue was commissioned by the federal Works Progress Administration in 1934 and completed in 1935. Depression-era art--how appropriate. It was way back in 2007 that someone broke off her hand.
