       New Orleans is a city of statues, some in unexpected places, some very well known and others almost  forgotten .  Here are a few that everyone will know and some that you may never seen.  New Orleans has more statues that any city its size in the United States and maybe the world.  That will be another blogs.  You can maybe guess why that is? You may be dead on !

 

    This one is at St. Elizabeth’s Condos on Napoleon Ave.  This was once an orphanage and home to Anne Rice, the vampire author.

New Orleans Condos, New Orleans Statues

   This one is outside the Louisiana Super Dome remembering the soldiers who fought in Vietnam.

    P.T. Beauregard, a Civil War General outside the entrance to New Orleans City Park.

 

    Joan of Arc, The Maid of Orleans in the New Orleans French Quarter.  Was a gift from France to the City many years ago.

This one is in the French Market near the Mississippi River wall. I have no idea except it looks like an Indian woman sitting on a fountain. Do not know if the Mural ties into the statue or not. Your thoughts

    Ashley, that is neat that you know that. I am always still amazed at the things you find on the internet. I too thought it was very interesting and wondered the story behind it.

    Can you tell me where the statue & fountain are located? I’m pretty sure it’s on Decatur, a fee doors down from Cafe du Monde. Took a picture of it too in October 2010, during a business trip & I’m planning a return trip.

    Yes it is on the flood wall near the Cafe Du Monde. Its sort of hidden unless you take the time to walk the area.
