Mona Zimen, an artist in Bavaria, Germany, recently notified the VWoolf Listserve that she has created an outdoor bronze sculpture of Virginia Woolf. Along with her notice, she sent photos of the bust that she had taken in her garden.
Here is her message:
Because of my research in the Internet over Virginia Woolf I suspect that there is a sculptural monument only of one artist so far and also for me as a sculptress. I had the big personal wish to portray her. During the last months I created a sculpture for outside in the size for a big garden, park or a public place.
This is not the first bust of Woolf to be sculpted in recent years. Valentina Mazzei created a bronze bust of Woolf in 2010 that was displayed at the 20th Annual International Annual Conference on Virginia Woolf: Woolf and the Natural World that year.
