Then vs Now
The original pictures were found on the web at various places. The center pictures are from a trip in 2006, and the far right are from a trip taken in November 2008.

No doubt that the statue held up very well. The pedal looking things that hang down under the material that the statue is sitting appear to have been broken off, but other than that, it looked pretty much the same in 2006 as it did when the park was open. It has since been removed entirely and hopefully stored away somewhere. I checked the hillside to make sure it hadn't just been pushed over the hill, and it was no where in sight.
