Portlandia - Portlandia is a sculpture by Raymond Kaskey located above the entrance of Michael Graves' Portland Building in downtown Portland. It is notable for being the second largest copper statue in the United States after the Statue of Liberty. Portlandia is an example of the city's Public Art Program that works with the public and private sectors to integrate art into communities that reflects a range of disciplines, media and thinking.

Installed in September 1985 after being floated down the Willamette River on a barge, Portlandia is based on the design of the city seal. It depicts a woman in classical clothes with a trident reaching down with right hand to greet visitors to the building.

The statue itself is 36 feet (11 meters) high. If standing, the woman would be approximately 50 feet (15 m) high. The statue is above street level, and faces a narrow, bus-only, tree-lined street.
