A FIRST OF ITS KIND 

Sculpture series of overlooked women in American history

Think about it for a second... how many memorials or statues of women in the US can you name off the top of your head?

 

Maybe your thought process was like ours - Pocahontas, Statue of Liberty, Sacajawea, um... who else?

 

Out of the estimated 5,200 public statues depicting historical figures throughout the United States, only 400 are of women, the Washington Post’s Cari Shane wrote in 2011. Many of which are depicted as nameless muses, archetypes, allegorical symbols of abstract thought, and most importantly, oftentimes created to memorialize men: The Statue of Freedom, Lady Liberty, The Three Graces, the ladies surrounding our first president in The Apotheosis in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda. 

As we recognized the gender gap within our own statue business and inspired by the recent #MeToo, #TimesUp, #WomensRights movement, we decided that NOW  is the time to create a collection highlighting the extraordinary women in America who, regardless of the immense scrutiny of the time, worked diligently to fight for the rights of all women.

WHO ARE WE?

We are MARBLECast Products, Inc., a proud Made in America statue manufacturing business located in 

the heart of Salt Lake City, Utah. 

Since our early beginnings in 1996, our family business has been commissioned to create amazing sculptures 

and busts in the likeness of presidents, coaches, fathers, grandfathers, CEO's, and a variety of historical 

people such as Lincoln, Beethoven, Carver and Martin Luther King, Jr.

Our idea for creating an entirely new sculpture collection initially began a few years ago when we noticed

that there is a serious lack of representation of women in public sculpture, on public display, and in gift shops. 

WHAT WILL WE CREATE?

Twenty (20) 7.5'' tall sculptural busts.

Each bust will be custom sculpted in the likeness of the women chosen for this first of its kind collection.   

WHICH WOMEN?

Our first series will begin with Women of the 19th and 20th century, who unwavering fought, sacrificed, and spoke fiercely about women rights and social change.

WHY NOW?

August 18th, 2020 will mark the 100th Anniversary of 
the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution!

This collection will be tools to educate, inspire, and remind women and men of all ages of the incredible 

accomplishments our country's fore-mothers made towards achieving equality.

EVEN MORE SO...

2018 has witnessed a modern revival of the women’s rights movement. 

 

While the fight to be recognized and valued continues, it is also the time to look back and remember 

the badass women who contributed to society by fighting for for equal rights and their place in 

science, arts, math, literature, technology and so much more.


This sculptural collection will work to educate other women (and men) about the unsung heroes and 

silent warriors around the world.
