Description

The “Gëlle Fra” is one of the emblematic monuments of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Erected in the heart of Luxembourg, Place de la Constitution, in 1922, this female sculpture was called the “Queen of Peace” at the time.
The monument consists of a raised square plinth supporting an obelisk 21 meters high, with at its top the gilded statue of a woman who, at arm’s length, holds out a laurel wreath.

Commissioned from the famous Luxembourg sculptor Claus CITO in homage to the Luxembourg soldiers who died during the First World War, then dismantled by the German occupiers in 1940, the “golden woman” only found its pedestal in 1985, following incredible adventures.
