It was the first statue to be placed in the Hall for more than 100 years , and the first woman to be represented. The finished statue was unveiled in September 2012 by a descendent of Kitty Wilkinson. It depicts a strong, determined and caring woman carved in marble from the Cava di Michel Angelo in Carrara, Italy.
