Monumental Mysteries: American Venus Pictures
America’s own “Venus” was so beautiful that she inspired 3 of New York's monuments. Plus, did a man get abducted by aliens in 1975? There’s still no evidence to prove his story isn’t true.
Scattered around New York City are 3 statues inspired by the same stunning model, Audrey Munson -- often referred to as the American Venus -- who was a muse to hundreds of artists. This statue stands at the USS Maine Monument in Central Park.
