  • Description

    A monument honoring the courageous pioneer women who settled, developed, and shaped Arizona. The 10 ft bronze statue is depicting a woman who just beheaded a rattlesnake in her garden. She is holding a headless snake in her right hand and a shovel in her left. She stands tall, strong, and determined, inspiring others to strive with determination to achieve their goals.
    The statue’s commission was part of the Arizona Centennial celebration in 2012, led by Prescott Valley councilwoman Lora Lee Nye. The sculptress Deb Gessner created the statue from a painting of the artist Bob Boze Bell, who saw in this painting the image of his grandmothers.
    On July 27th, 2013, the statue was unveiled and dedicated in a special ceremony in the Civic Center Park.
