Artist Pablo Machioli and a few of his friends erected a papier-mache statue of a pregnant black woman holding her fist into the air, to stand in front of the Lee and Jackson statue. The statue is adorned with a rainbow sash, a baby on her back, and her raised fist is coated in gold glitter.
According to the Baltimore Sun, the statue is called “Madre Luz,” or “Mother Light” in Spanish.
Baltimore mayor Catherine Pugh reportedly said she has "no position" on the "lady liberty of black power" statue being put up.
While the Robert E. Lee statue could have stayed up for centuries due to its fine craftsmanship, the "lady liberty of black power" was destroyed overnight either due to rain or being tipped over.
