Golden Lady: a Mom-ument

A golden goddess named "Citadel" is dedicated to the pioneer women of South Dakota. A plaque at its base quotes John Steinbeck's "The Grapes of Wrath," praising a similar woman as, "the citadel of the family." It was sculpted in 1991 by artist Dale Lamphere.

25 years later Lamphere sculpted another woman, 50 feet tall, elsewhere in South Dakota.
