This sculpture is a bronze portrait of Martha Jane Sands, a beloved tribal elder of the Grand Ronde Tribe of the Pacific Northwest. For this commission, the council elders selected Rip unanimously. Upon seeing Rip’s maquette rendition of Martha Jane, many elders in the council broke down in tears, feeling that he had captured her spirit.
The Martha Jane monument is located at the Spirit Mountain Casino in Grande Ronde, Oregon.
