It’s only been a month since Ketanji Brown Jackson was sworn in as the first black woman to serve on the Supreme Court, but she’s already been honored with one of America’s quirkiest traditions: a bobblehead in her likeness. .

The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum in Milwaukee unveiled Jackson’s bobblehead on Friday.

“We are thrilled to release this figurine of Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson,” Phil Sklar, co-founder and CEO of the organization, said in a statement. “When the Senate voted to confirm Justice Jackson, history was made. We mark a momentous day in the Supreme Court’s 233-year history.”

The bobblehead shows Jackson smiling in his judge’s robe, with his name printed on the attached base. Her arms are down with her hands clasped in the middle as she stands in front of a mini United States Supreme Court building.

Jackson joins former judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg and judge Amy Coney Barrett who are already in the collection of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame.

The organization also announced 16 additional Supreme Court figures: Samuel Alito, Stephen Breyer, Neil Gorsuch, Elena Kagan, Brett Kavanaugh, Anthony Kennedy, Thurgood Marshall, Sandra Day O’Connor, William Rehnquist, John Roberts, Antonin Scalia, Sonia Sotomayor, David Souter, John Paul Stevens, Clarence Thomas and Earl Warren.

Whether you have one sitting on your desk in the office or on a shelf at home, bobbleheads represent our heroes, whether real or fictional, or the current moment, often with pop culture references.

“A good bobblehead captures a moment in time or a memory or has a detail that ties into some kind of bigger story of what’s going on or a viral moment,” said Chris Fryar, co-president and owner of Alexander Global Promotions, to NPR. . “It’s a work of art, but it’s a toy and it’s fun and it’s a bit ironic and it’s a bit lighthearted. I don’t think anyone can be really offended by a bobblehead. “

Jackson’s bobblehead is on sale now for $30 each. Orders are expected to ship in September. The remaining judges’ bobbleheads are also $30 and are expected to ship in December.
