The Republic

Hayes and 63rd. The Republic (also known as The Golden Lady) is 24 feet high and is a replica of the original 63 foot gold-leaf plated plaster statue that was created for the World Columbian Exposition of 1893. The replica (and the original) was by Daniel Chester French and was dedicated May 11, 1918. (Read more here.)


  1. What a gorgeous statue. Gold-leaf plated sculptures are so rare (don't think I've seen one in Boston). The light in this photo gies The Golden Lady such a lovely look.

    Have a lovely weekend!
