Just before arriving at the Philadelphia Art Museum you will see the newly gold plated Joan of Arc. it is worthy of a picture or two. You can get some great photos from the Hop On Hop Off Bus as it goes to the back of the art museum.

This particular street is great for viewing monuments but you have to be careful when you are driving it can be a bit confusing. This is a great statue. Stop and take the time to pull up the story if you don't remember it from the history books. What a brave woman to make a stand.

The statue was recently re-gilded. It was fabricated from the same mold as the statue in Paris by the sculptor. Joan D'Arc faces the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

You can't miss this statue as it is right across from the front steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Although the art elite / purists may decry its bling as an eyesore, it definietly stands out in blinding gold. I actually love it. It is so gold and garish that it is great.
