This wooden statue of a Native American chief is a familiar sight for long-time visitors to Charles Towne Landing State Park in the West Ashley area of Charleston.

Charles Towne Landing honors the site of the first European settlement in the Carolinas, dating back to 1670. The park underwent a full renovation and reopened to the public in August 2006. One of its new highlights is beautiful Founders Hall – the only LEED-certified venue in Charleston.

Janelle Dawsey, who took the photo above, sends this description: “I visited the newly renovated Charles Towne Landing State Park and snapped this picture of an Indian Chief statue located near the entrance to the animal forest. As a kid, this statue was one of my favorite things at the park. I couldn’t help but notice how time had weathered its appearance – it has aged just as I have. I thought I could get a dramatic effect by snapping the picture from the ground at an upward angle. The sky was also beautiful that day and made the perfect backdrop for the photo.”
