New York City's Statue of Liberty is the only copper statue bigger than this. Created by artist Raymond Kaskey, the lady Portlandia is kneeling down to her city, Portland
. Her face, hair, extended arms and trident have been hammered to shape. Modeled after the city's seal, this version of Lady Commerce watches over the streets from the Portland Building
. While she conjures the city's mythology and past, the 1980s office building looks a bit drab. It has history, however, it is supposedly the first post-modern structure of its size in the country.
