The Goddess of Electricity
This statue, dedicated to Marconi, stands in Washington, DC. It belongs to the National Park Service, and had become very worn and lost the original gilding. As a community service project, the Society of Gilders worked together to gild the entire memorial anew. We donated our time and labor. Here are several views, before and after. Most photos by Michael Kramer of the Gilders Studio. That’s me, up on the scaffolding.
