Lowering Our Lady

Chains are prepared to life the 4,000 pound statue into a crate.

Workers from Transportes Mora use rope to gently lower the statue.

The statue is wrapped with nylon straps.

Pulling her down.

Workers strain to lower the statue, a risky move that could have exposed any weak welds in the statue. Fortunately it held together strong.

Keeping her steady

Ready to be placed in the crate and wrapped with plastic
