Roman god Neptune

An 8-ft. tall fiberglass statue of the Roman god Neptune has gone up at a retail center on Lakewood Boulevard, south of Gallatin Road. The privately-funded statue was approved by the Downey City Council last year as part of the city's Art in Public Places program. The statue was designed by Downey-based artist Jameel Haiat. ********** Published: August 19, 2010 - Volume 9 - Issue 18
