Statue of Lise Meitner on the edge of an imposing, black pedestal. Together, the two form a single ensemble of particular significance: "Outstanding women are rarely put on a pedestal. How difficult it must have been for a woman to work in science, how even more difficult to be respected. That gave me the idea to make the pedestal as wide as possible, as a way to commemorate the many 'non-pedestalled'," said the sculptor.
