A university has decided to erect a statue of Greta Thunberg. They are of the opinion that the work will be an inspiration to all the students.
A bronze sculpture of none other than Swedish climate celebrity Greta Thunberg will soon be unveiled at Winchester University. Sculptor Christine Charlesworth has been working on the statue for a year. The university wanted a sculpture of Greta because it is a very ‘green’ University and they feel that Greta will be an inspiration to all the students.
Christine Charlesworth has completed two other sculptures of women for other institutions: that of Ethel Smyth, composer, and that of Emily Wilding Davison, suffragette. “I am very proud to have created three important female bronze statues for prominent places,” the artist said.
Greta’s statue will be unveiled on 30 March.
