Spirit of Detroit Pistons
So the Detroit Pistons are going for the gold again. I was just downtown last night and just happened to be in the right spot to get a picture of the “Spirit of Detroit”, a 26 foot tall statue, wearing a Pistons jersey.
FYI – The statue was created by Marshall Fredericks and put on display in 1958. He never named it the Spirit of Detroit (I’m not sure where the name first came from). At the time, “It was the largest cast statue made anywhere since the Renaissance and was designed to require no repairs for 100 years.”
