Venus Rising from the Sea originally appeared in Chicago, at the World's Columbian Exhibition of 1893. (The name of the original artist has been lost.) Theodore N. Haller gave a replica of the statue to the city of Port Townsend, Washington, in 1906. “Haller Fountain” or “Galatea,” as she is known locally, was produced by the J.L. Mott foundry in New York — and ordered from a catalog. The damaged and aging statue was recast by Port Townsend artists Mark Stevenson and David Eisenhour and reinstalled in 1993.
