It helps to have some history to go along with the statue. We were lucky enough to be on a tour that went by this statue. Portlandia is hammered copper just like the Statue of Liberty. The reason she isn't green is because she is oiled on a regular basis. We also got to see a picture of the artist next to the statue. She is huge. You don't get the full scope of her size from the street.
