Mother Missing from Beautiful Statue of Mariano Medina and Daughter

This beautiful statue of Mariano Medina and his daughter Lena, created by gifted sculptor Jane Dedecker, was installed at the new Larimer County building in Loveland, Colorado, in May 2018.  As much as I love the piece, I wish Lena’s mother, Takansy, were also present.  She is the main character in my latest historical novel, Mariano’s Woman.
