This sister stands within an wooded island created by the intersections of Barnwell, Blossom and Devine streets.  Her pedestal appears to be rough cut lime stone and mortar and reaches a height of about six feet.  She was refurbished by Karkadoulias Art Bronze of Cincinatti, Ohio in 1986.  The process resulted in her missing crown spikes bing replaced, dents were hammered out of her skin and her torch was clad with twenty-four karat gold leaf.  It also left her with a chemically induced golden brown patina.
