The “Connecticut” statue now overlooks the James River in the area near Great Shiplock Park. The fiberglass and resin composition resembles a giant Indian brave peering out over a parapet and resides at the Lucky Strike Building in Shockoe Bottom.
The statue measures 25 feet by 13 feet by 9 feet and weighs 2,400 pounds and was unveiled at its new location in early November 2010. “Connecticut” had been a mainstay at The Diamond during much of the Richmond Braves time at the baseball stadium, on loan from the artist, Paul DiPasquale. When the Braves moved out of town, the idea of a tribute to Native Americans at the stadium diminished, prompting the need to find a new home for Connecticut.
