Before and After.
"Black Hawk" gazes over the Rock River from high atop a bluff in Lowden State Park once more. Restoration on the Lorado Taft statue (which he called "The Eternal Indian") is complete. Work remains on the surrounding plaza at its base. But the tarp and scaffolding covering and obscuring the statue the last several years is gone.
