Another One? Who Knew?

Diana at Princeton

You know that Diana statue, the one that looks a lot the one above, that stands high above the grand staircase in the Philadelphia Museum of Art? Who knew? Our golden Diana has a double at the Princeton University Art Museum. (A jewel, by the way).

Actually, there are even four more statues -- somewhere. Their locales weren't cited.

All the statues of the huntress were removed from the old Madison Square Garden building at Madison Square, New York, when the Garden moved uptown and the old venue made wayfor new building. I was surprised. Are you?
