Geocache Description:

The Lady is a 21-foot metal statue located near the intersection of Dutch Lane and Champion Road in Jeffersonville, IN. This cache can be as easily found using a street map as with your GPS. In good light you may be able to do this cache from your vehicle.

This sculpture is "The Winds of Change" but is more commonly refered to as "The Lady." It was commissioned in the summer of 1983 by Larry Myers, owner of a now-defunct rail road business at the location.

The commission went to the then 18 year old Denise Freville, who took the work on as a summer job and worked on the project the summer after her graduation from high school and on breaks from college. Denise did the design work, for which she was paid $5-$6 an hour, and employees of Mr. Myers' business volunteered their time to do the metal work.

The work took a little over a year to complete. The approximate $30,000 cost was born by Mr. Mysers' business.

To log the cache, please email me and tell me who The Lady represents.

Also, peruse the large scale a few steps away. It has its own message to relate to the viewer. It is made of salvaged material. The cross beams, for instance, are over 100 years old and come from a bridge in Clarksville, TN.
