The largest grouping of statues is called The First Wave, and is by Lloyd Lillie, Professor Emeritus at Boston University College of Fine Arts. The dozen bronzes are part of the entry into the Women's Rights National Historical Park in upstate New York, commemorating the site of the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention. At this event, some of the women we introduced yesterday got to meet in the flesh, namely co-organiser Lucrecia Mott and guest speaker Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Much to my dismay, Wikimedia Commons holds no images of The First Wave, and only one inadequate one of the park itself. The following are provided by the National Parks Service for download (link to gallery):
James and Lucrecia Mott:
Frederick Douglass and Elizabeth Cady Stanton:
Also in the visitor centre is a terracotta statue of Sojourner Truth.
Most of these images can be found as a Flickr gallery, which I created for those who prefer slideshows.
