The Spirit of Detroit
This statue is 51 years old and represents the city of Detroit. He was created by Michigan artist Marshall Fredericks. He sits at the foot of Woodward on Jefferson and all visitors to our city must have their photo taken with him. He is sporting a new patina now. Can you tell? It is lighter and all one color. The verse behind him is from 2 Corinthians 3:17 "Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." This guy is 26 feet tall and sometimes wears a sports jersey supporting one of our teams.
