A 7m statue of Richie McCaw may be coming to New Zealand.
The Statue was made in China in 2016. However, the statue has yet to be purchased.
But the statue may have found a home in the All Black’s hometown. Kurow has been trying to raise money to immortalise its favourite son since 2016.
Currently, a large cut-out of McCaw from the 2011 Rugby World Cup sits in the town, but it was faded and required yearly upkeep.
The Chinese statue is not what was originally planned but the town has not been able to organise anything else.
The community has raised about $17,000, which could be used to help relocate Yang’s sculpture from its current home in his studio in Shiyan, China.
