The Details

Name: Constance

Location: Tower Ramparts bus station

Sponsor: Ipswich Buses

Artist: Donna Newman

Design Inspiration

Designed to commemorate the centenary of the first votes being granted for women in Britain, ‘Constance’ was inspired by Ipswich Buses and their support of the festival ‘Women’s Voices, Women’s Votes’ in which a bus was named after leading Ipswich suffragette Constance Andrews. This design turns the elephant sculpture into an Ipswich Bus dressed in its latest livery of purple and green, perfectly matching the suffragette colours. The bus, driven by Constance herself, is seated with fellow suffragettes and is a celebration of inspirational women.
