    Ahhh! Finally found it! I've tried to get to it a couple of times but always got side tracked until finally one day I looked up and there it was! Of course the Portlandia Statue is one of Portland's great tourist attractions. It not really all that much to see but regardless for Portland it really is a must see!

    The Portlandia Statue is featured in the opening credits of IFC's hit show "Portlandia." Designed by sculptor, Raymond Kaskey and installed in 1985, the statue looms prominently above the entrance of the Portland Building. The statue measures at 34 feet and features a woman who extends her hand. The large size and design ensures Portlandia remains an iconic symbol of Portland, especially as the TV audience of "Portlandia" grows in size.

    It really is a spectacle to see in person. The best thing about it is that even thought it is so large, it's very difficult to find. It's quite hidden, so make sure you note where it is exactly.

    It may be just a statue, but it's a giant one! Located in downtown, you could walk under it and never know it was there, but if you look up, it's pretty impressive!

    I believe it's the second largest hammered copper statue in the US after the Statue of Liberty. I like to joke that she's our patron goddess.

    Iconic Portland landmark. Right in the heart of downtown. Pretty good sized, kind of a big deal. Worth checking out if you're in the neighborhood. Has a TV show named after now, you know.
