Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary

Mequon, Wisconsin


The Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, Wisconsin wished to honor Martin Luther, the sixteenth century German theologian and leader of the Reformation, as well as create a point of reflection on the Seminary grounds.


After extensive research into various images of Martin Luther, the statue began as a charcoal sketch in the Conrad Schmitt Studios. Next, artisans sculpted an 18″ clay model. Adjustments were made in the clothing and pose – and every detail was given attention. After a full-size model was made, the statue was cast in a single pour at a foundry in Italy.

The base of the statue is faced with “Absolute Black” granite and etched with selected quotations from the teachings of Martin Luther.
