  • Description
    Joan of Arc Park

    Joan of Arc sculpture in Riverside Park is a life-size statue of the 15th-century French heroine and martyr who command an army during the Hundred Years’ War. This is the first monument in NYC commemorating a non-fictional woman.
     
    Created by Anna Vaughn Hyatt Huntington and dedicated in 1915, the sculpture depicts Joan of Arc as a spiritual figure, holding her sword up to god praying for guidance while riding on a warhorse.
     
    The granite base, made by John Van Pelt, is incorporated with stones from the cathedral in Rheims – where Joan of Arc stood by King Charles VII during his coronation, as well as with limestones from the Tower of Rouen, where she was imprisoned on account of witchcraft and heresy before being executed by burning.
