The statue is set on a composite structure composed of a poured
concrete base and a coquina shellstone column with a poured
concrete cap It is centered on the north entrance to the Alcazar

There is some bronze staining on the cap as well as mold and
mildew on the north face of the column.

1 pint of sodium hypochlorite (household bleach), 1 cup trisodium
phosphate (such as Spic & Span), and 1 gallon of water. Use only
soft natural bristle brushes. Flush with copious amounts of
clean water.

chloride (sal ammo .ic) to 4 parts talc or diatomaceous earth,
add household m oni to wet down for application. Cover with
