Jeanne d’Arc

The contract with the sculptor stipulated that there would be only three editions of the statue: the one in the Place des Pyramides, one in Philadelphia, and one in Nancy. A site was selected on the eastern approach to the Girard Avenue Bridge, and on November 15, 1890, the work was unveiled in Philadelphia with extensive fanfare. In 1948 the Association relocated the sculpture to its present site near the Philadelphia Museum of Art and gilded it in 1960.

Noticing the many copies of the statue throughout the world  the contract apparently has been frequently broken.
