Hannah Dustin Statue - Nose Job

The statue appears to have been cleaned up a little -- which makes the contrast between her nose and the rest of her face stronger. Her nose is currently intact, although rather black and frost-bitten in appearance. Aside from a good view of the rhinoplasty, from this angle she seems to be smiling a little in anticipation of the scalp bounty.
