George II statue in Golden Square George II statue in Golden Square

Statue: George II statue in Golden Square

Erection date: 1753

Inscription

Georgivs II {Latin for 'George II'}

Made in 1720, and erected here in 1753. Societe Jersiaise provides more photos of this statue, and here we learn that the statue, which looks to be of stone, is actually lead painted white. Which leaves us puzzled - why does it appear to be so badly weathered?  Would acid rain eat into lead?
