Covered up. It's currently undergoing preservation attempts. Currently not on display.

The statue is there but covered up. Some snowflake must've taken offense to it and made them cover it up.

[Aud Egan, 06/17/2021]

Some might jump to that conclusion, but it turns out the statue is under wraps because the 1982 wooden sculpture is in need of serious repair. According to the restoration company, it needs "sculpting and installing a new headdress; fixing rotted locations; bridging splits, gaps, and voids; and installation of stainless steel supports at the base of the statue."

Peter Toth Indain.
