W52 - The Sculptor's Room

Maria Louise Lander, granddaughter of Nathaniel West, was a famous sculptor. Her masterpiece was a statue of Virginia Dare, which today stands in the Elizabeth Garden on Roanoke Island. Virginia Dare was the first child of English parents born in America. The ship carrying the statue shipwrecked on the way from Italy to Boston, leaving the statue on the sea floor for almost two years. Once retrieved, the statue was exhibited in Boston where it was nearly destroyed in a fire. Finally, the statue was sold to a buyer who died before paying for it. Whether cursed or simply bad luck, the statue’s history seems appropriate for its ties to Salem.
