Wrapped up in a blue tarp,  the Lady of the Lake, a 1930s era Art-Deco style statue and an icon of Echo Park Lake,  was carted back to its original location early this morning, the tip of a peninsula that juts into the northern part of the lake.  The statue was removed from the peninsula sometime during the 1980s when it was placed in a nearby storage yard after being heavily damaged by vandals. After the Lady of the Lake was restored in the late 1990s, the statue had to be located to a less prominent spot on the east side of the lake since a pump house had taken its place.

Engineers working on the  $85-million lake clean up project said they planned to return the statute, officially known as the “Nuestra Reina de Los Angeles” (Queen of the Angels), to its original location as part of the clean up.
