Iconic Echo Park Lake statue missing fingers

Photo by The Eastsider LA

Some Echo Park residents have noticed this as recently as the Lotus Festival: It appears the Lady of the Lake statue at Echo Park Lake is missing a few digits. The fingers of both hands have fallen off the 76-year-old statue (or perhaps broken off by vandals), which has been repaired as recently as May of 2009.

It seems the Neighborhood Council took on paying for restoration in prior years, and there seems to have been some drama revolving its restoration. An August 2008 article on Chicken Corner has the back story behind it all, including the story about how the neighborhood in the late ’90s  got the graffiti-marred statue back after being stored for 13 years.

GEPENC President Jose Sigala commented on The Eastsider LA article on the subject, saying:

I join with others in expressing my anger over the defamation of the artistic history and cultural icons of our neighborhood. I see no difference when a developer tears down a cultural and historical home or structure with the mindless vandalism of the Lady of the Lake. Both actions impact the reason why we live here in Echo Park.

Given the city’s budget financial crisis, I am not sure where the funding many come from to repair the lady of the Lake.

I am not sure what the cost may be to replace the statue’s hands but I would like to commit to work with other community members in identifying and raising the funds to restore her hands.

I will ask to see if any of the funding that is dedicated to the rehabilitation of the lake may be used to assist in repairing the statue.

    Hola Humayra, sí, tengo que estar de acuerdo contigo en que un programa MLM no es el lugar para que un novato vaya y gane dinero. Desafortunadamente muchos de ellos terminan en esta industria… ¡y pierden dinero!

    Desde que Google canceló su herramienta de palabras clave externas y la incorporó a su programa de Adwords no ha habido una herramienta de palabras clave que ayude a todos los vendedores en línea dentro de un rango de precios que sea asequible. Ahora que Jaaxy está disponible, los vendedores en línea de nuevo tienen la capacidad de encontrar la palabra clave que vale la pena su inversión en tiempo y dinero. Su revisión es muy precisa en todas las peculiaridades que los vendedores están necesitando. Gracias por esta reseña.

    Me uní a Neobux el 26 de junio. Ahora tengo 14 RR… En realidad no sé mucho sobre la ampliación de las referencias, así que alquilo referencias cada vez que tengo dinero… y ahora no tengo mucho dinero para ampliarlas… ¿Qué debo hacer? Necesito tu orientación… Espero que puedas sacarme de este problema. Gracias de antemano.

    Hola, este producto promete tráfico, pero, ¿lo cumple? ¿Y un tráfico constante, válido, bueno, no de una sola vez? Me encantaría probarlo, pero tengo mis sospechas sobre la compra de tráfico o seguidores en los medios sociales ya que se supone que son tácticas turbias. ¿Lo has probado personalmente? ¿Funciona? ¡Gracias! Marios
