AUBURN, Ala. (EETV) - A new sculpture meant to honor 125 years of women attending Auburn University is being constructed on campus.

The statue, installed by design company Advent is the result of over a year of work. It was lead by 2011 MBA Auburn graduate and Advent Design Director, Lauren Duke Patterson.

The statue weighs nearly 1,000 pounds and is just under 7' tall. It is entirely made from bronze.

The statue, which will be finished in the next few weeks, is located near the Mell Classroom Building and the Quad residence halls.
