About Flower in the Crannied Wall Statue – Dana Thomas House – Frank Lloyd Wright
Decorate your favorite room with this hand-painted resin sculpture featuring the Flower in the Crannied Wall Statue designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and Richard Bock to be placed in the entrance alcove of the Dana Thomas House in Springfield, Illinois. Susan Lawrence Dana commissioned the quintessential American architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1902 to remodel her deceased father’s home. During the 1920’s, Susan Lawrence Dana’s interests changed and became interested in political activism. Susan’s beautiful home became a center for political activism and thought. Susan was appointed the legislative chairman of the Illinois branch of the National Woman’s Party in 1923. From her home, Susan led her campaign to pass legislation in Illinois that granted equal rights to women. Due to many factors, that effort was unsuccessful. Nevertheless, her home continued to host lessons, lectures, and classes on non-traditional philosophies and world religions. Frank Lloyd Wright named the statue after the Alfred Lord Tennyson poem, which is also shown on the back of the sculpture symbolically representing the human attempt to understand nature and the universe.
