The monument consists of a large female figure of Minerva or Athena, the goddess of wisdom and war, representing California on a column with four bronze reliefs representing "Crossing the Sierra," "Vaqueros Lassoing a Bull, "Trapper Trading Skins with Indians," and "California's Progress under American Rule", as well as portrait medallions of important personages in California's past, Sir Francis Drake, John Sutter, John Fremont, Father Junipero Serra, and the monument's benefactor, James Lick.
There are also four piers surrounding the base of the column, supporting sculptures. Two are female figures allegorically representing Commerce and Plenty, and two are groupings of three figures each. One of these is titled "Early Days" and contains a missionary, a Native American, and a vaquero. The other is titled "In '49'", commemorating the California Gold Rush, containing three gold miners.
Pioneer Monument Reviews
Walking up Market Street, I took a detour to see Pioneer Monument and the accompanying plaza. Nice space and a Farmers' Market on weekends. more »
2018年5月に行きました。 シビック・センターの広場にある女神像です。シビック・センター駅を出て、シティホールに向かい途中の広場にある大きな像です。周りは官公庁やコンサートホール、図書館、博物館などの大きな建物が建ち並ぶエリアです。 more »I went to May 2018. It is a woman statue in the plaza of the Civic Center. It is a big statue in the plaza on the way out of Civic Center station to the city Hall. The area is surrounded by large buildings, including government offices, concert halls, libraries and museums.
Breed removed the Indian statue, but you must look up the biographer of James Lick., he donated much to the Bay Ares, from a Womans House to Observatory under his name.
There is major talk and few articles written about sf planning to remove this statue! Its a pretty big deal for the culture. Its worth stopping by and giving it a good stare down.
