Hundreds of nominations were gathered through workshops, online nominations and live interviews, and from these 25 were selected to be 3D scanned and printed into small statues. These small statues seem like the perfect maquettes for full-size civic statues to be seen out on the streets, where we can all be inspired by the work of these wonderful women.
