That is soooo cool. I pass that everytime I walk around the waterfront! He looks a whole lot better clothed I think! It sure is going to be a big weekend.
This is a wonderful statue! Good luck to the All Blacks on Sunday! Michèle
It looks as if they cleaned the statue because in a photo I found on the web (I was curious as to how it looked unclothed), it is covered in rust.Michèle
Anne I was pretty surprised to see him clothed!! Michèle, I had just assumed he was made of bronze- but I just read it is iron. I imagine he would be rusting up all the time in that position on the harbour- so maybe he is not as 'permanent' looking as he appears.
