Virginia Woolf, although named an icon of the 20th Century by the BBC, a world-famous writer and champion of women's rights has, astonishingly, yet to be honoured with a statue in the UK. The first full-size statue of the English writer, famed for works such as Mrs Dalloway and Orlando, could be placed in the heart of the town in which she lived for 10 years.
There is a public consultation about installing this beautiful statue of Virginia Woolf in Richmond. This is to see if the public would welcome the idea. Make your views known here
The artwork, sculptor Laury Dizengremel said, will be “a very important step towards celebrating [Woolf] as the iconic writer, the wise and witty woman she was.” The campaign already has over 70% ofthe funding needed - £50,000 - to design and manufacture the statue.
