A few years ago I showed a statue here and wondered about its repair. Well here is the 2014 overhauled site.
It is a bit of a reorganization born from necessity for this site on Heritage Square, but pleasing enough a summer scene. However the story is no longer totally clear as the lantern bearer has left probably fed up with waiting or the colonies. At any rate once he lost his hand and lantern there really was no reason for him to stick around.
