The neatly folded hands in the last clue are on the statue of Mary Dyer that has been on the State House lawn since 1959. Dyer was hanged on the Boston Common for her Quaker religious beliefs. The sculptor of this work Sylvia Shaw Judson was also a Quaker. She embodied a sense of serenity in this work of art. Another version of this statue can be found at the Race Street Meetinghouse in Philadelphia.
