The Spirit of Detroit, the iconic city monument. Created by Marshall Fredericks in 1958, it was the largest cast bronze statue when it was installed standing 26 feet tall.

It's time for the Spirit of Detroit to return to the people of Detroit.

As a huge fan of the Motor City, I love this Spirit of Detroit design....... Without making any changes to this deign, what are its current dimensions?


Hi Todd,

I'm a big fan of your work! The model is approximately 111x44x75 mm.

Wow! I'd never heard of this sculpture. What a great piece. Thanks for sharing here.

Thanks! It's really something special to see in person and it really resonates with the people of Detroit. If you're ever in the city definitely take the opportunity to see it. It's very close to the Joe Louis Fist and other great sculptures.
