|"Florence Nightingale" (1937)|
by David P. Edstrom,
Edstrom's sculpture remained damaged for decades - both hands and the lamp they carried had been broken off, exposing their mounting rods in the arms and torso. A set of replacement hands were attached at one time, but the effort produced an almost comical effect.
Restored by Rosa Lowinger & Associates, the "Florence Nightingale" sculpture now correctly shows one hand holding the lamp and the other shielding its flame. The area surrounding the sculpture's base and 2-foot foundation has also been landscaped with white roses.
