“Great Statue, Dont miss it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

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.

“This is the Original...the Copy is in Paris!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2012

The gilded statue of Jean d'Arc, the poor French peasant girl who inspired a country and led a victorious army before capture, inquisition by a panel of English judges, followed by death by flaming, burning torture in 1431, sits atop an equally gilded horse, proudly raises her banner high, and symbolizes the desire and struggle for freedom everywhere. Unlike our copy of "The Thinker" by August Rodin, near the museum of the same name located elsewhere on Ben Franklin Parkway, our statue of "Joan" is the real thing. The statue in Philadelphia was commissioned to Emmanuel Fremiet, the French sculptor, and is the ORIGINAL; a beautiful copy is on the Rue de Rivoli, on a square facing the Louvre, in central Paris.

“Paris in Philadelphia.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2012

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.
