The Spirit of Detroit statue was created by Marshall Fredericks. It was commissioned in 1955 for a cost of $58,000, and dedicated in 1958. In its left hand, the large seated figure holds a gilt bronze sphere emanating rays to symbolize God. The people in the figure's right hand are a family group. The 26-foot sculpture was the largest cast bronze statue since the Renaissance when it was first installed. It was cast in Oslo, Norway.


Make it a great week Detroit.
