Syracuse-based sculptor, Carolyn D. Palmer, worked on a new statue of comedian Lucille Ball, which was unveiled in Celoron near Jamestown on Saturday.

Palmer, who has created convincing sculptures of Franklin D. and Eleanor Roosevelt, the Wright Brothers and Pope Francis, has been working on the commission since October.

Her work replaced the now infamous "Scary Lucy," a bronze sculpture by Dave Poulin that became the subject of a viral controversy last year.
