Art Deco Diana.
From Flickr:

Art Deco bas relief of the Goddess Diana from the facade of the landmark McGraw Hill Building on North Michigan Avenue in Chicago, Illinois. The building was rebuilt several years ago; in the rebuilding process the complete facade was dismantled and later re-applied to the new building. These sculptures and other ornamentation were the reason for the facade transplant.
