A lowly and poorly maintained replica (commissioned in 1958) from a greatly superior and well maintained bronze statue of Pocahontas by William Ordway Partridge which is in Jamestown, Virginia, and dates from 1922.

Piece of history hidden in Gravesend.next to St Georges church is this lovely statue of an Indian princess. Tourists look for this especially after the success of the Disney production. A must see.
